Cloud Man pens more White Clay

 White Clay

There were two bars in the hamlet.
I like the word Hamlet.
It cleans up the place nicely,
There was Jumping Eagles.
There was Stabler’s
Just two bars.
To survive a Saturday night there
Was do-able,
It was dangerous and not.
It is more dangerous now.
I never saw anyone close to dying
Now I do
Back then death was sudden
I had two friends die Sudden
A half mile from the HAMLET.
Sad ass joke to be or not to be.
But if I was there they were laughing
Laughing as they slammed into the other car.
Only nine died that day
Cloud Man

    Hamlet! I just finished helping my son with Othello. Gotta love Shakespeare. Enjoyed the poem very much.

    I feel much sadness and loss here.

    But it was the closest place I could go where I felt comfortable in telling 47WhiteBuffalo that I entered, chanted and survived my first sweat lodge with, among others, a Native American who spoke the Lakota words in prayers to the East, South, West and the North.

    Now, if I can only locate my own center, I will find a way back home.

    I feel better that the author of this piece has survived, and is able to tell this tale for others to listen and perhaps learn,

    Thank you.

      Hello Michael. Sorry for the delayed response to your very personal comments. I hope by now your heart has helped you find your center and that balance has been achieved to reach “home.”
