Medicine Man

an old man went into the desert
to fast and pray

until he heard only the drums
of his heartbeat

until he saw a raven
leading the lost ones home

with his knife he drew a circle
where he danced and sang
for all his days

all who were lost and who wait to be found
all who wait to find themselves
all the children who knew they were not enough

all are now inside the sacred hoop
