Running Wolf


In my dream
I dream I am you
running wolf

As you run through
the valleys of truth
I see the dew
I see the trees
as though I am you
I see through your eyes
I feel your fears
I feel your heart beating

I see indians dancing
round fires of peace
I see the fears
of what the white man brings
I see peace and harmony
and a place for me

Running wolf
one of truth
why is there a place for me

Because my light and soul
I am the reincarnation of you

    This is very nice poem, Dave, but I have to agree with what Leslie Philibert said. You should capitalize the proper nouns Running Wolf and Indians.
    Well written. (Report) Reply

    Like this, I would capitalise the name Running Wolf, as a proper noun, Indians (not indians) too.. (Report) Reply

    A beautifully graceful spiritual piece. I'm part Canadian Indian and the older I get the more in touch with my spirit free side I let myself be. It's a wonderfully refreshing outlook on life. No restrictions just following ones natural instinct. Loved this piece and bravo on poem of the day. (Report) Reply
