Human Son of peace

In peace he left his lodge, and reverently he trod,

the way his mother shown the way from youth he'd known.

To connect with all there was, as his family slept he played.

he played to the  great white spirit God, with thanks in the

melody, from memory's shared of successfull hunting days,

he thought of his child at play,and his wife with her sun toned

skin, of beads here, she'd braided for him. He thought of tommorow's

trail the inevitable (moving day) on the rolling prairie hills, and

the coming winter ( still )  of the laughter and horseplay there would

be along the way, sending out the breath that the spirit gave back

in his wafting praise. He remembered the forward scouts out under

the open skies, and the owl of the grasslands cry, he asked that the

way be free of eyes of enemies. Human Son of peace, at peace in

the forests half sleep.

for Constance La France's His story contest, written by Joe Maverick.

    Seems a good seasonal poem, Joe. I like the rustic tone, simplicity. The simple manger comes to mind with the animals, the straw, the warmth in spite of the cold. Love, daver

    A keen and insightful write, Joe! The aboriginies are oft of the most patient, and wisest souls. You have captured one of these soulful moments. Can be people of legend and mystique. Their tradition and customs are most intriguing. Immensely enjoyed this write! Happy Easter Monday, Joe!!! Best to you, Mikki

    Hey Joe, how are you?? thanks for not letting me give out/up on my writing. I feel like I am in a creative slump and just can't seem to write a decent poem.

    This one has a beautiful rustic tone and scene that, unfortunately, has been lost forever. Like the last two lines, the "forest's half sleep." Love, Dave
