The Medicine Man

He listens, eyes intense with interest

Half nodding with vas understanding of time

Lips ready to speak a truth

And he listens

Worn straw hat and worn headband signal

His status, long grey hair a sign of wisdom

As he ponders what to say

And he listens.

Hidden stores ,ceremonies lost in time

Rush though his mind like a warm summer breeze

White stubble beard, we see the pace of his life

And Yet he listens.

The gift of wisdoms comes to those who wait

That have traveled life’s highways


Live your dreams in Merida Mexico
