Red Cloud

Melding thoughts.. A guiding force;
Showed strength through sharing Ways, 
drew spirit, from the great One, following the wind,
finding a hollow,  gliding the currents stringing a bow,
Being close at hand for us, What more was there to know?
amid familiar scents of pines so fresh, taking for our needs enough, 
To sustain the tribes, to be all; all we Ever should Want to know, 
in this knowing to be as one!

I am glad I came across this one which is such a deep powerful tribute to Native Americans. If you haven't already done so, when you have a minute, please take a look at my piece "A Past Life - The Mayan Warrior Princess." Pandita
