Running Wolf Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Running Wolf

Rating: 4.5

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 a wonderful poem! It runs with power and truth, it expands the heart to embrace both that power and that truth. It's with humility that I acknowledge you are writing about my American society, or more precisely the indigenous part of it which is Indian, and not white. I have a great belief in the life of the land, that the ground we stand on or run over, is alive, and feeds us with its energy. You have given voice to this belief. And it may just be the redeeming force that will save us from the bleak reality you reveal in your other poem.

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.
