Just that and that…

That smile, tiny, shy, made in a moment, sending emotions way out there to those we see and those seeing us, that laugh, that shows, the silence how to dance, that hug, that holds the love within, that moment, that time, that look, that is so bold and daring, that brings it all in, inside, awww, that is that, that makes you, you, that makes life live, that is good, and that what is not so, all that makes one cry, that sheds the lost, that takes the pain away, that makes it, that is that, what it is, just that and that…

Buffalo Run

Come run with me, where there is no end, but, the edge of the cliff, where we all run to, run with the many, run free, as the plenty, come join us, we will be the herd heard, the family that runs together, that cares, that loves, come share, come be fair, come beware, come run with me!

Alive & Moving

I woke up to four more inches of snow, so, i put out some tobacco and my first step was for strength for you to go on, for all who were weak, at this time, the second step was to give you some energy for this struggle, we call life, the third step was to help you to stand up to all those putting you down, the fourth step was to help you to stand tall in the winds of resistance, the fifth step was to join you in a big laugh, because, we all need healing, for all of us, that are are all still alive & moving.

Ho, wah!

I got bacon grease in my wild rice, got bear grease on my trail, got moose droppings in my yard, wolf tracks on my road, and walleyes in my freezer, Ho, wah!, i got brown eyes and salt n pepper hair, more than beads and feathers, think, i got more haters than fans, Ho, wah! i be dancing and singing all the time, most the time in my own place, with some fry bread on my table and family all over the land, writing most days, glad, i’m so, old, i remember when there wasn’t no tv, ho wah! so, so, happy god made me a indian! Ho, wah! strong buffalo-dakota

Like a Gray Day

Everyday fades into night, some with flash, others slowly dim into darkness. Some days stay gray all day long, some days are blue and bright, others are dark and wet or cold and harsh. Every life ends, every death arrives. Each and Every fades into night. Change and same move with them and those. I feel like a gray day that floats into a silent night! Everything fades! But, until it does, smile and enjoy the gift of being alive!

Once Upon a Time

Upon the many roads of memories that one travels, the smell of death always seems to linger along with fears’ song, that suddenly it all came back, today, with the sound of car muffler and helicopter hovering overhead, like it never left or that it will always be with me. Guess, old soldiers fight the same war, over and over again, even if it’s only in the mind! 11.11.18 St. Paul, MN.

IT IS SO

NOT SO LONG AGO, A WHITE BUFFALO ENTERED INTO OUR WORLD! SHE CHANGED COLORS AS WE SAW HER! IT IS SO! SHE CAME TO POINT OUT, GOOD FROM BAD AND GAVE US THE PEACEFUL GOOD WAY! IT IS SO! SHE LOVES US, WE LOVE HER! SHE IS OUR SAVIOR, OUR MESSIAH! IT IS SO! SHE IS A WHITE BUFFALO, SHE SAID SHE WOULD RETURN, AND SHE HAS! IT IS SO! SHE HAS SAVED US, NOT SO LONG AGO, IS NOW! IT IS SO!

BUFFALO RUNS

I AM BUFFALO, I WILL OFFER MYSELF TO YOU
AS LONG AS YOU OFFER PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS IN RESPECT
I AM HERE FOR YOU
A BUFFALO THAT IS WOUNDED IS HELD UP BY ALL THE OTHERS
TO STAND!
BUFFALOES ALL MOVE ONLY AS FAST AS THE SLOWEST!
COME RUN WITH ME
WHERE THERE IS NO END
BUT, THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF
RUN WITH THE MANY
COME JOIN US
WE WILL BE THE HERD
THE FAMILY THAT RUNS, THAT CARES
COME SHARE, COME STARE, COME WHERE, COME BEWARE,
COME RUN WITH ME
WHERE THERE IS NO END! STRONG BUFFALO-DAKOTA

Ah!

FOLLOW NOT THE PATH OF THE MANY FALSE LIES FROM THOSE WHO ONLY KNOW HOW TO PRETEND AND WHO ONLY SEEKS INDIVIDUAL WEALTH, WHO CARE ONLY FOR THIER OWN THOUGHTS AND PERSONAL NEEDS. FOR IT IS TIME TO OPEN UP TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF ONE’S OWN SPIRIT, FOR, THE WORDS OF THOSE FRIVOLOUS FEW WHO RULE OVER WITH SUCH DISREGARD FOR THE HUMBLE MIND, THE GENEROUS HANDS OF SHARING, AND THE CARING HEART THAT BEARS THE TRUTH, FOR THOSE WHO RECKLESSLY SHAME AND MOCK WILL NEVER RECEIVE THE LOVE THAT PROSPERS, ONLY GET THE SATISFACTION OF GREEDINESS, MAKE YOUR OWN OPINIONS, LEARN YOUR OWN TRUTH, FOR THIS LAND HAS LAWS WAY BEYOND MAN AND FORCE, IT IS NOT TIME TO FOLLOW, BUT TO BE EQUAL, AH, HE WHO STEALS SHALL LOSE, HE WHO KILLS WILL DIE, HE WHO GLORIFIES SELF WILL END UP AS NOTHING! AH, THAT IS ALL, FOR NOW!
