SPIRIT HORSE

A SPIRIT HORSE FLEW BY ME, IT DID NOT GALLOP, IT, DID NOT NEED TO, FOR, SPIRITS DO NOT RUN, THEY FLY, THEY NEED NOT BE LIKE ALL THE OTHERS, NOT OF A HERD, IT WAS MOSTLY, AIR AND WIND, OH, THAT’S SAME THING! ONE DOES NOT NEED TO STRADDLE THE SADDLE OR PUT IN A BIT, INTO IT’S MOUTH, TO TAME THE BEAST! FOR, ALL THOSE EQUESTRIANS’ TO RIDE! IT APPEARED TO ME, TO BRING ME, A GIFT FROM THE SPIRIT HORSE!
THAT, NEVER CAME BEFORE, THAT, I NEVER KNEW, KNEW ME, THAT, HAD NEVER CAME BEFORE, THAT TO BE MORE ACCURATE, IS THAT, IT WAS ME! WHO IS THAT, SPIRIT HORSE!

his writings have inspired me since his cousin introduced us back in 1970 & we became roommates, schoolmates, teammates, brothers of the times……he IS TheSpiritHorse……he IS StrongBuffalo…..he IS an honorable, caring HumanBeing……..he is MyFriend

Thank You, John, I have been your friend for 50 years, and sure appreciate your kind words, and how generous you have always been, like donating that car to ‘Trail of Broken Treaties’ in 1972 led by AIM, i ended up picking up a car load of tennis shoes in Cleveland and handed them out all to the brave sisters and brothers making that trip to deliver our Twenty Points, Thank you, John, always your friend.
