Ancient Stones

Charcoal black tip of arrowhead,
among these ancient, stones - stained red

Heartbeats feel rhythms of ghostly drums..
Winds carry haunting, chanting hums

I feel your blood, flow here with mine,
outlasting, even decaying time

I've been told the stories, told by you,
I know we're just spirits, passing through

When thunder, shakes awake the night,
I vision warriors by firelight

Their voices echo, around mountain's soul,
while moon and stars watch us below

Respect the sky, and mother earth,
borrow the beauty, from time of birth

Then give in death peacefully
yourself, to rest eternally

Among these ancient, stones - stained red,
my mirror reflects traces, of those long...........

    Oh Donna, this is very very nice. What humans do to other humans. Remember the English/ Irish, William Wallace/ "Braveheart " So what other blood do you have? Thank you for liking my WALLS :)

    WOW! It is na very nice poem and also nice to know that you have Indian blood in you. We should always be proud of who we are. In 2007 - I wrote a poem for a friend of mine's grand mother She had been a real indian princess. Her name was Ruby Lee. That year she was 100 years old, but two months after her party. My friend died, She was 44 years old.... Lucilla
