​​​ONE FEATHER 

by Shan Derr
One feather from each culture. 
One feather to heal a tribe.
One feather given out of respect.
One feather filled with love.
One feather to heal each other.
One feather to bring a smile.
One Feather to honor with.
One feather to carry.
One feather handed down to the next generation.
One feather to travel over the water and across the Sahara Sand Dunes.
One feather to acknowledge wisdom of many nations.
One feather to keep peace.
One feather to give to grandmother.
One feather to honor an elder.
One feather to a prayer.
One feather to protect the world.

One feather becomes the wind.
One feather becomes the voice.
One feather protects the people of peace.
One feather becomes the action of projection.
One feather together can mend the world. In one hand at a time.
One feather speaks volumetric thunder.
One feather silences the wails.
One feather, equals many hands and voices reaching one another.
Committed to the impact which is so profound.
Only then will each truly understand the true meaning of One Feather.
