Stepping back to look inside at my cheyenne ancestry. Fire in his spirit is my dream guide......I hope you enjoy
dedicated to my dear friend, Mary Broadstone with love.


Fire in his spirit

I see you standing there

looking back upon

another day

to the fields 

where the buffalo grazed

to the wallows

where they lay


To the village

where family and children

lived and played


I see the sun

glancing off your hair

long and flowing

the sheen of

a ravens wings

Your bow and arrow

slung across shoulders

kissed by Father Sun

as you take off in a sprint

then an all out run


Fire in his spirit

Yes, I see you there

sorrow in your eyes

mark's of death

upon your arms and chest

Its all gone now

Mother moon

no longer shines upon

your lodge as you rest

Father sun

no longer bathes your body

at break of day


Fire in his spirit

I see you kneeling there

head threw back

arms extended


in supplication and prayer

to the four winds

I hear your prayer

"please brothers carry me there"

To a place where we again

see this proud people

again free

You look 

For all that was

wishing again

you could enter there


Fire in his spirit

I see you standing there

all alone

flute in hand

such a sorrowful melody unfolds

drifting across the land

across the ears

that hear no more


Fire in his spirit

it draws me still

come to me

hush my spirit

be still

Fire in his spirit

come for me

sing to me


I listen still

I can hear this being recited to the background of the indian drum in a circle around a fire, it is spirited and spirit inspired.
