Sun Dance ( A Totem Poem)

Dancing Indian

 

I

Celebrate

The rising of the sun in the sky.

Then pay tribute to the four winds,

Ki

Yii,

Ki

Yii.

Dance

Like the eagle soaring

High,

Entranced by the rhythm of the drum,

Ta

Dum,

Ta

Dum.

So

Ho,

I

Go.

So

Ho.

Ta

Dum,

Ta

Dum.

My feet

On Mother Earth

Pound the rhythms of New Birth,

As I celebrate the rising of the sun.

Author Notes

I have great respect for Native American Culture.


This is a Totem Poem. The verse is somewhat shaped like a totem Pole.


I took this picture of a statue that is in Bemidji Minnesota. This statue is still, yet animated in dance. This poem will become one of my Animated Stills Poetry Collection.
