One of our recent writing prompts was to draw a card from the Medicine Card deck a friend gifted me for my birthday. We chose Horse and the guide that accompanied the deck by Jamie Sams & David Carson with Illustrations by Angela Werneke (St. Martin’s Press).
From the book:
Power to run
Across the open plains,
Or to bring the vision,
Of the shields
Dancing in the purple dream rain
Oh magical horse take me
dancing in the purple dream rain. We will tango
and two-step under
a super moon, filling the sky with light.
And when there is only darkness, carry me
to the place of answers.
I am unsettled.
Oh wise horse, remind me
of my power, the power within and
and the power that surrounds me.
Let me harness that power to
stampede against hate
Let me remember
how far we’ve come, how far we have yet to go
and how far we can go.
Help me remember how strong we are together.
