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.
Linda Lee Lyberg
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
