Heritage

The wind blows
and the sun warms my skin
I think back on my heritage
and wonder what it would have been like
to live off the land
to hunt your own dinner
to have a family
that is not only blood
but the village
to sit around the fire
and tell stories
of how the tricky fox
stole the acorn from the naive squirell
my heritage goes back
to my great times many grandmother
who was the medicine women
of a small tribe nestled in the mountains of Oklahoma
she took care of the sick
with herbs and incantations
feathers and markings on the flesh
it is my blood, my heritage, and in my heart
to fill at home among nature
and to take care of the sick
I am cherokee, the wind, the sun and the medicain women
who lived off the land
told stories by the fire
and her family was the village.
