Seven Stones

by Kevin Heaton


Gather high on a hill

at the revealing


                                 of all goodness


Awaken seven stones with igneous passion force



sacred fire ember glow                        spit sparks

through smoky mystery source


Spirit thunder west wind

grant hollow pipes creation breath


Eagle prayer, sky spirit conveyor;

transport receiver pathway sight


               north ,south, east, west,

impart the good, sweet cherry blood


Native woodwind fluted songs


                             wispy songs to happy feet;

dancing through restoration quest,

and Wopela: Thanksgiving.
