Indian Ink

“Indian Accent”

Hear the whispers inside

Chanting from long ago
Echoes come and go
Losing time in a soft eternal glow

A beautiful and delicate autumn mountain scene
Dry blue eyes enchanting melodies!
Voices falling from the sky
Rising hymns release ancient demons that cling to the soul

The darkness dwells under gentle moonlight
Ancestors of the Spirit World,
Exposing Indian hands that weave native smoke into the air
Their spirits taunting burrows from the muddy Earth
Moccasin makers rise from underneath
Guardians of dream catchers
Smooth thread from the outer edge, bowing heads.
Luminous gems of ivory,
Chasing a florid kiss.

Through the winds of enchanted drums, voices cry out for rain.
The hollow chimes mesmerize  
An ancient rage begins to flare
Stale madness, 
The spears of the perfumed buffalo skin pierced my senses
Removing the veils that cover my eyes
The hands that cover my ears
Washing the scalp that bleeds on my face
They collect tears from memories of the past.


Raven silk braids, feathers fall from my hair.
Dancing in a horrid hallucination of Peyote,
Waking up from the “American Dream.”
Holding out my arms, I am free, I can fly.

    Linda, Glenn here. Thank you for your warm welcome. In this poem, appreciated how you captured spirituality, earth bonded, and pain of European cruelty of American Indians. This poem is of special interest to me because I am a member of the Cherokee Nation. I well know what you are writing about.

    Hi Linda, I'm just getting around to reading this. It is very strong. It is very solid. It has real merit. Great job. Keep up the great work. You are a real poets poet. (and I'll throw in the general public at large, who should be paying homage to you as well, for good measure.) Have a great week end. Earl
