Grandfather Buzzard built you these mountains and filled them with veins of gold and black blood when the kingdom all crowded the arch in the sky He pulled up deep mud from the water to dry for saplings to root, for birds to make nest for the vulture to brood among great beasts and pests for your feet to tread while you forge ahead to rest and seek shelter, to bury your dead Grandfather Buzzard he drew down his wing to carved you this valley for water to bend to protect you from wild winds that gather on high plains to weave ribbons of rivers from the high ridge rains to hunt to make shelter by a confluent force to foster your children to hasten your course to protect and to serve the needs of the many for bait and for hook, to eat and drink plenty Grandfather Buzzard tamed the fierce flame He taught it to travel from east into west to shine light for yield on crop and of men to awaken the day again and again
Young Man 04:10
Walking on this high road each second a hard step. Looking out, around me my head dripping sweat. Fingers feel my pockets for charms or loose thread. Only automatic thoughts fill my head. Think. Think. Think for yourself. Once mighty trees brought down by the wind. Think. Think. Think for yourself. These words in my ear that my daddy once said. Once I was a young man I didn't understand. I took it all for granted lovers, life, and friends. I let us slip away child never thinking of the end. I let you slip away time I want it back again. Think. Think. Think for yourself while your body and mind can further roam. Think. Think. Think for yourself. The old man leads the young man home.
