THEMEDICINE OF YELLOW HORSE


 
nowthat i have walked
those sacredBlack Hills
black words& black thoughts
no longerflow through my brain
unrecognized
catchingthem in their formation

from thesun who brights my eyes
in our undoingof ancient ties

all thatnurtures life & heals
in mistsof fog remembered

like buffalo,head bowed,
and in humbledignity,
"There areonly two roads;
thematerial road
which isnot happiness,
and the un-materialroad
which is..."
