I wrote this a number of years ago and ran across it in my files today. It was nice since I just came home from a Pow Wow

The Sound of the drum

Beats in my soul

As the sound of my heart

Beats in my chest



Two sounds, one beat

The heart beat of my life

The drum beat of my soul



Two sounds, one beat

Make me whole

Guide the path

That is my life

The Mystical Indian

Simple and powerful! Great writing. I was listening to R. Carlos Nakai's powerful flute music the other day and suddenly the drums started. I think it was recorded outdoors in a Canyon. It was so timeless and wonderful that for a moment I forgot what century I was living in. That was refreshing and healing! The Original Music: drums, the wooden flutes, and the chanting of the human voice alone in nature - untutored soul!

Jake,

Having attended a pow-wow, and participating in the "friendship dance," I can attest to how the drums move the soul. Beautifully penned tribute to Native American culture.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Hache Hi Naad, (Wolf song in Arapahoe)

I sent some sage smoke up for you Jake. Pounding my hand drum with a coyote bone. Trickster coyote is playing tag out in my meadow. It's as if she can hear your drum beat all the way from Florida. I am into your ebook and then I received your hardback 'Grandfather's Song' in the mail today! It will make reading easier when I am away from my computer. Thanks Jake George. Blessed Be.
