The Medicine wheel

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Old Native American wisdom. We need to gather as one people to save earth and all people.


Wisdom of the Medicine wheel.

(I have been lucky. Many kind Native American took me under their wing and taught me how to find peace.)

At the Mall I went to the so-call Native American store.
A Middle East man tried to sell me a China’s made items.
I touched a Medicine Wheel.

I told the man.
“A proper Medicine Wheel has the power of the four winds.”
I touched a  Dream Catcher.
“A real one would protect your spirit and keep bad dreams away.”

He grins at me.
He didn’t understand a word that I spoke.
He told me.
“Does the same things.”
I leave the store with nothing.

Sitting with my Apache Friend outside the gate of Fort Hood, Texas.
I sat and listen to him.
His skin harden from the Texas sun.
I came and sat with him every Saturday for many months.

He had a story for every item he sold.
I brought him food and water.
His stories were passed on to him by family and elders.

He gave me a Medicine Wheel.
He rose up and made a circle with his hands.
He told me.  “All people are part of the circle of life.”

“We all have a purpose.”
With sadness in his voice.
“Us Apache and Native Americans were responsible to protect Nature.
We did a poor job.”

The white people were responsible for the fire.
They shared their gift and now fire is held in every corner of the planet.
Eyes looking at the ground.
Then he raise his  eyes and look to the sky.
The fire was taught(Atomic and nuclear) too well.”

“The black people held the strength, wisdom and honor.
The wisdom of the black people lost direction.
We need their strength before we kill off all that is good.”

“The yellow people have courage, leadership and clarity.
The gentle and calm souls will be necessary for this world to seek peace.”

“The medicine wheel is a compass to all life.
We must know all four directions.”

My Scottish beauty.

Dreaming of Scotland

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


For a sweet woman. I won’t forget.


                       Dreaming of Scotland
She was as pretty as a picture.
Fate had brought her to me at a dark tavern.
Her raging brown eyes.
Auburn hair across gentle and soft shoulders.
Her fragrance of flowers open my senses to her beauty.
Her Scottish accent made me wish to hear her sweet voice.
I was told to be kind to her.
Love was dead to me.
I was infected with rage and hate. I tried to escape her beautiful face.
Drinking and trying to blind my hunger.
She found me at the tavern.
She wrapped her arms around me.
Kissed my neck, face and lips.
She whispered “Love is a powerful storm.
Please don’t speak and allow us to love. “

In the mist of softness and opening new doors to joy and bliss. Sometime you forget to create a safety net to protect  yourself and your sweet love.A warm German summer allow two people to fall into the mercy of a sweet love. Swim in the gifts young heart can understand .Summer was ending. My Scotland beauty was going home.She told me of Scotland. The beauty of the country and the good people.I told her. I wanted her forever. I talked of marriage.Love took my hand.
She whispered.
“We had a short time to stay together.
I allow you into my heart. Sometime words don’t mean a lot.
Love never does die. It only falls  asleep till we can open the
door again.”

She went home.
I got lost in the booze and liquor.
Allowed the deserved load of pain to overtake my kindness.

I still went to the small lake.
And I dream of Scotland.

If I knew.



If I knew.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


We learn too late to be quiet. Anger and violence leads only to more pain and sadness.


  If I knewIf I knew.
I would of  loved more and said less.Sweet memories slip into my mind of us.
Two people loving and holding tight like it was our last moment.I remember walking  hand in  hand with you.
On lonely beaches.
Never more happy.

The sweet times are rare now.

Eyes of youth had faded away with life burdens and losses.

I look into the mirror and see a tire man.

I wish to go back and feel again.
To hunger for sweet  kisses and love til the morning light.

Walk down the naked beaches of Monterey coast.
In a mist of silence with a gentle hand in mine.

I didn’t know laughter and dreams would fade away.

If I knew I would of try to stop time.

Hold you like you were my last breath.
