Apache Verse

I was inspired by the song Geronimo by Sheppard to read more about Apache history and culture. I found a fascinating religion and story of resilience. These are two poems I wrote concerning my observations:

***

Like Wind

I move like wind
around the edge of fire
dancing with the earth
on strings and hearing
thunder from your voice.

Eclipse

beads of sweat eclipse
grey mountains
and coyotes howl
at memories.
