Burnt Tinder – A Native American inspired Poem.

31 Aug

Burnt Tinder – A Native American inspired Poem.

I lay before you my ceremonial bed
Inflated with the breath of the wilderness.
I lay before you my nylon cave
kept high and taught by artificial reeds.
I ask permission to pierce the ground,
Keeping my Cave in place.

I walk the trails and burn the tinder,
Bathe in the water and say thank you.

We collect the tinder and kindling
Clearing the dangerous woodland waste.
No longer will your forest beds be littered
With the easily combustible brush.
There will be less for lightning and heat to grasp
And less to grasp on to you.

We walk the trails and burn the tinder,
Bathe in the water and say thank you.

WIth bandana and kilt I explore
Among, around, over, and between.
With Wife and child I appreciate
beside, with, amongst, of.
The trunks and limbs do not waiver
Yet do not force a path.
Simple suggestions of direction and speed
Allow me to meander or walk straight.

We walk the trails and burn the tinder,
Bathe in the water and say thank you.

We take the pictures, in machine and mind
Home with us once more.
We remember the fires and smell it still
In mind and on our clothes.
You have no memory of our visit,
We left nothing to remind you of us.

We walk the trails and burn the tinder,
Bathe in the water and say thank you.
