Crystal Blue Coyote

My spirit name is Crystal Blue
count on me to lighten your day
I am a coyote of a different color hue
I’ll teach you a lesson with my play.

 
Within my banter are countless wise words
and things are not always what they seem
yes, I’m a trickster, I’m sure you’ve heard
but I’m open to possibilities and dreams.
 
I live my life embracing life’s magic
and welcome whatever comes my way
though at times what happens is tragic
I’ll live to smile and laugh another day.

Author’s Note: Many years ago, I had a reading done by an Indian Shaman who named me Crystal Blue Coyote. For more information on spirit animals and their meaning, visit: Spiritanimal.info
 Poetics Night at D’verse The challenge is to write a poem, of any length or form, about an animal in a human way or a human in an animal way, highlighting some trait of the animal/human that either sets us apart or brings us together – it’s up to you, just as long as the poem is new.

  1. I haven’t read anything about a coyote in years, yours is the third in response to the prompt and they are all different, Linda! I love the first person perspective and the lines:
    ‘I am a coyote of a different color hue’
    and
    ‘yes, I’m a trickster, I’m sure you’ve heard
    but I’m open to possibilities and dreams’.
