Circles | Free Spirit Volume 2014 Issue 2

Everything an Indian does is in a circle,
and that is because the Power of the World
always works in circles, and everything
tries to be round.

The sky is round
and the earth is round like a ball,
and so are all the stars.
The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.
Birds make their nests in circles,
for theirs is the same religion as ours.

The sun comes forth
and goes down again in a circle.
The moon does the same, and both are round.
Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing,
and always come back again to where they were.
The life of a man is a circle
from childhood to childhood, and so it is
in everything where power moves.

— Black Elk
