A Tribute to Joyce Hayden: woman, wife, mother,

grandmother, leader, helper, healer and inspiration to all.

Flying freely beyond the light;

Taking her place in the Grandmother’s circle,

Grasping the new awareness with all her might.

Another uncharted frontier to explore;

Like the Yukon world of her dreams,

Awaken, Awaken she comes to implore.

Join conscious humanity in peace and joy,

Expand the love to embrace us all,

She brings us the bridges for us to employ.

Take heart, take each other and natural motivation;

The children, the old ones with hope and connection,

And when its time, join all to celebrate in the company of creation.
