spirits in the sky

by nightspirit

imagine a river flowing
underneath a sky of blue
a moment of such radiance
in the grasp of the morning dew

now picture a strong rock mountain
in the distance up so high
and as if by chance on a second glance
an eagle passed on by

such beauty carved a painting
of a time so long ago
a time of strength and wisdom
and a man named Geronimo

he stood there strong and proud
upon this earth so tall
a leader that knew direction
and the balance within it all

a warrior of painted colors
of such a sight to see
a wounded path a spell was cast
why couldn't we let them be

now the earth is mad and spiteful
on the warpath spirits song
the winds they hum to the tribal drums
to fight where they belong

so stare out into the world today
then at the campfire in the sky
and know that within a spirits heart
that they will refuse to die !

This is a fun piece! There were something that through me off a little, and I hope that I really hope I don't offend you, however, I was a little put off by imagine this, and picture that, while I understand it created a flow, I just felt distracted. Again, I hope its okay that I bring this up, and hope you will not be overly offended by it. Overall I really enjoyed the western feel of this piece. And enjoyed the meter of "the winds they hum to the tribal drums/to fight where they belong" . Please keep on writing and I look forward to reading more.

    well to be totally honest - my imagine this and the picture - are creating a vision from the Indians stance in a time gone by - trying to give the reader a place to stare as they read - not anything other then that - thanks for stopping in - ^v^

    why not - when you get a feeling inside your heart - you have to set it free - never hold back and write it out - your writings are who you are - your words are your expression dancing in the open - there is no music playing - no band - just you - visualize in your mind what you see - and go from there - thanks for your kind comments - always in respect - me - ^v^
