MAJESTIC BACKGROUND LINED


Skies are changing as we sit
Pinks and creams on lighted blue
Dark clouds in the distance now
Spread into a misty purple hue

It almost looks like mountains
Hanging from the sky
Majestic background lined
From storms now gone by

Forms are mixing as they move
Making shadows across the grass
Upon the silky raindrops
Reflecting back like shards of glass

Morning all,


ALONE

Waking up, there was sand in my mouth
My eyes felt as if they were sewn shut
Matted and burnt, filled with stinging salt
The rest of me was battered, scraped and cut
Rubbing my eyes, the vision slowly came back
I was on a beach in the middle of nowhere
The blue went on for miles and miles
There was nothing but water to compare
No memory of what happened to me
Not sure if I was on a boat or cruise
There were no clothes on my body
No indication of any thing for finding clues
This island was very small and perfectly round
No trees, no people, and the size of a pond
Just the heat of the sun, and the water’s glare
Nothing in sight, just water and sky forever beyond
No shade to protect me, nor food I could eat
Just the sand, the water and me
No ships in the horizon in any direction
Nothing as far as my eyes could see
Days turned into nights, nights into a week
My thoughts were no longer mine, per say
Dehydration and heat took they’re turns
Turning my blistered flesh into cracking clay
I dreamt of the name people called me before
Nothing I could recollect, made any sense
Dilutions from hunger and death is all
Mirages of life held only pretense
Alone I awoke here, alone I am dying
Such beauty in itself, and such horror the same
For my death here alone
Is all that will remember my name…………

Sam

One of many dreams last night!!

NATURE WALK

We went to the river today
My youngest calls it our nature walk
We sailed the prayer for my mother
Just before three o’clock

Then we said a prayer for her
And watched it sail away
Hopefully to reach her
By the following day

We walked the levy’s trails
And walked along the beach
Finding new things to see
And even more to teach

Bugs of every kind
Birds that skimmed for food
It really was great to be back
For, the river improves my mood

HONOR AND TRUST

With all the mishaps in life
Honor and trust can still be earned
It’s the highest form of respect
Yet, the hardest to be learned

As a child, you test your limits
To see how far things will go
As a teen, you push the buttons
To see what you can blow

As a young adult, it starts
Its importance becomes valid
Friends, family, and work
It is life’s greatest ballad

As a mature adult, it’s measured
On how much it weighs upon you
The reflections of yourself
That others see so true, or right through...

Untitled

She stands on the prairie,
She is alone,
At the sky above she looks,
Where among the stars her ancestors live.

Her hair is braided and near her brow are her ceremonial feathers,
The wind burrows through the feathers,
Gently they caress her face,
In her right hand she carries a peace pipe,
In her left hand he carries her ancestors spear,
Standing before her is a well lit fire.

Tonight he seeks answers,
She seeks wisdom,
She seeks peace between her people and other nations,
She seeks understanding about life,
She seeks the meaning of her existance,
She seeks to be a good warrior among her people,
So many things she wishes wisdom for.

She begins is chant, His song,
Slowly around the fire she dances about,
Lifting her leg and chanting a verse,
She chants words taught to her by her mother,
And whose mother was taught from her mother,
Words of chanting and song that goes back 10 generations.

As she chants the words of ancestors song,
The stars above shine brighter than she's ever seen,
Suddenly, A White Tatanka appears before her,
A blessed animal among her people,
Just beside the White Tatanka is the great bird,
The Great Bald Eagle,
Together as brothers, As one.

She is filled with emotion,
Words can not describe it,
She can not tell if it is joy, ecstasy or Heaven,
But all she can do is bow in respect and honor,
From the fire, Words of chant and song come,
They fill with her heart harmony, ancestral wisdom,
Her spirit is rejuventated, She feels a purpose about her life,

The song in the fire fades and ends,
The Great Bald Eagle and White Tatanka,
They are gone, But she feels reassured,

She prepares her journey back to her people,
Upon her horse she goes, To her people she goes,
She looks over her shoulder towards the horizon,
A bright star shines before her,
Harmony fills her heart, mind and soul, For she knows,
The answer to her questions, the wisdom she seeks,
All will be granted to her,
For truly the Great Spirit of Heaven will be with her always.

SIGH OF RELIEF

A sigh of relief came at noon
When my father called to say
Mother’s surgery went great
And they say she'll be ok
2 days for mom in I.C.U.
Sedated so she heals
Another week in the hospital
And then it’s by how she feels
Then I took my youngest
To see the E.N.T.
He just put her on more meds
For now she’s surgery free
She’s back again in 3 more weeks
To see if they healed her throat
If nothing has changed by then
On a tonsillectomy we will vote

Hi Sam, thought you could use a little color.

The Rainbow

They are formed as the last drops fall,
From a storm just ending,
Causing white light to seperate,
Into seven colors always bending,
At the top starts as red,
Then goes to an orange shade,
Followed by a yellow line,
Then green as more colors cascade,
Next is blue as you can see,
Then indigo a color thats mixed,
Last but not least it's purple,
Arched in the sky transfixed.

Good Morning

It seems like you have alot on your plate, I wrote this last year but I think it fits here today..

Take care Mari and remember there are people who care and are here for you....

Online buddies
That’s what we are
No matter where we live
The distance near or far

In the many chat rooms
Friends we became
As we talked and laughed
Not even knowing real names

Your not words on a screen
Or a name in the crowd
My friend is who you are
And I feel very proud

You make me smile
And laugh so free
No matter what happens tomorrow
Today you mean a lot to me

We always know that here
Amongst the laughter and fun
That friendship might not last
But for today you are one..

EVERYDAY BLESSINGS

Through the worst of times
I’ve become even more aware
Of the everyday blessings
From people who care
Touched by their words
And their actions of love
Felt deep in my heart
And in my soul, through of
Compassion I can only hope
That I can return as pure
To help others help feel
What warm blessings ensure
Thank you is not enough
For some that have helped me so far
I can only pray that they know
Who each one of them they are

Girls night out

I took the kids downtown
For Thursday’s music in the park
Oldies music and rock & roll
Still, we got home just before dark

Beautiful weather for the show
Everyone was singing along
With the rhythm of the band
With every rocking song

This was really great for us
We needed to get out
I’m sure we’ll do it next week
Again without a doubt

LIGHTNING STRIKES

Feels like lightning strikes
When everything falls apart
So do you stand in the same spot
Or do you move to create a fresh start

The clouds that hang above you
Can rain or hail upon you
Or you can build a shelter
Until the storm is through

Choices in life are doorways
They can lead you in life to the vast
Or they can lock you in
To your bitter and hardened past

THE FAWN IN THE STREAM

On unsteady legs, the fawn confronts the steep edge
Thirsting for the water below
She wonders cautiously down
Keeping her balance in tow

Her legs shaking as the earth’s uneven ground shifts
She holds herself stronger
Knowing that the more she struggles
Time of thirst will only grow longer

Again she starts, down to the waters edge
Finally seeing her own reflection
She’s proud of herself
Now quenched with the taste of perfection
