Sacred Gifts Come with Surprise
Wednesday, September 07, 2011  7:06:00 AM

Poetry
This PROSE PIECE
won first place at the 2011 ANNUAL
POETRY CONTEST AT AMY KITCHENERS'' ANGELS WITHOUT WINGS FOUNDATION....and made me the
2011 OKLAHOMA SENIOR POET LAUREATE

A stringed ensemble and celestial chorus comes from the edge of the clan’s campsite where cacti spokes stretch above midnight snow. Eyes turn, and then view a dark-haired maiden dressed---from head to toe---in white buckskins with turquoise trim. She treads the cold carpet unable to find warmth for the soles of her feet, but ambles toward the chief and his council of elders. A Cotanka falls from her mouth, the choir fades away, and The Tribal Nation walks toward her, awestruck of each other’s presence. She’s overpowered by their dignified state. They watch her demeanor, her countenance, her dignity as she speaks with knowledge beyond her years. The men motion her inside the towering tepee and sit on warm blankets while she tells them they are a chosen village. She bends, then draws forth from her moccasin, a pipe adorned with feathers from
a great Eagle. This sacred bundle holds prosperity for them and the promise of guardianship of their land forever. When she offers the pipe to the chief, she gives him peace for all future treaties, harmony in unity with his people, wisdom with the expertise she possesses, truth with integrity even if hurtful, and spirituality between their souls and the phenomena of nature’s elements. A shrill piercing sound invades the sanctity of the tepee as three feathers drop inside the door. She turns to leave but the warriors want to hear more. She bends again, hands the feathers to the chief and explains the pipe is working. The men watch her once more, the Cotanka shines atop the snow, and the symphony comes from the opposite corner of the reservation. The sage and brush crack and crunch as they give way to heavy steps of a white buffalo calf. Black hair runs down her back.
