Snow Leopard

Deep inside the Tracker's rib
I saw the leopard as eternal,
As immortal spirit breathing
Fur so white and teeth so gleaming
Resolving all through heaven's love

Back in 2008 there was a super fantastic snowstorm. So I went to the Bronx Zoo.  There were maybe five people in the whole place.  It was so magical and spectacular. A crystalline world.

When we approached the Snow Leopard, it came running over to us, like it was so happy to have someone to talk to.  It stayed, too. It was such a deeply magical experience.

Holy light in living temple
Timeless soul you are beloved
Heart enshrined in snowcaps dreaming
Noble is the leopard sleeping
Now sleeping close to heaven's gate

The snow leopard's soul from nature sings
Man, take care of the little things
The snow leopard's heart from heaven calls
Man, take care lest nature spoils
Rest inside the ancient Law
Respect for all is at the fore
At one with all the living things
In love and peace with all living things
-Stuart Wilde

  1. What a handsome animal. I have never seen one, not even in a zoo.


Thanks for stopping by!
