St. Paddy's Day Treat



Like the Irish prayer, "May the road rise to meet you..", here is a prayer just as beautiful, just as sincere. It comes from the Acoma Pueblo, verse written by Simon Ortiz:
I add my breath to your breath
That our days may be long upon the earth
That our days of our people may be long
That we may be as one person
That we may finish our road together
May our Mother bless you with life
May our life path be fulfilled.
We may not be Irish, but we are extraordinarily lucky to have Simon writing such beautiful poetry for us.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

My best work

REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
