    Natural dependence

    Post by Gerrit Hermens on Mon 19 Dec 2011, 12:08 am

    Upon the stones of the Prairie,
    the Indian stares in nostalgia...

    If only that could suffice-
    that which brings purpose
    to every grain and fibre.

    The Spirit billows about,
    gusting every cinder
    in a calumet
    to a column of eagle’s thermal
    and soaring hawk.

    Across the vast azure,
    the melancholy of ages past
    tremble and diminish.

    The breath,
    crisp and sweet,
    filling his chest,
    it alone has rhythm enough
    to pulse into oblivion.

    Upon the stones of the Prairie,
    the Indian stares in humble contentment...
