 Warriors of the Rainbow

 

“One day…there will come a time, when the Earth is ravaged and polluted,

the birds will fall from the air, the waters blackened, the fish poisoned

in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, humankind as we know

it would all but cease to exist…a new tribe of people shall come unto the 

Earth from many colors, classes, creeds and who by their actions and deeds shall make the Earth green again. They will be known as the Warriors Of The Rainbow." *Old All Nations Prophecy

 

“Global Warming, a hoax, bullshit.” Trump

 

Will you drink oil?

Will you eat fracked earth?

Will you hide from the

sun, moon, wind, the

fierce Ancestor Stars, the

cries of your children, grand

children, great grandchildren, the

next Seventy Generations, the

human family extinct or thriving,

either way color blind, starved 

for Beauty, praising each spring

flower (however spring survives,

    Madre Tierra), cursing or

praising the Rising Sun, dreaming

the way to madness or sanity-

what I know is, only those who

remember the language of trees,

clouds, East/West/South/North Winds,

each fragile flower, each fragile

dream, rainbow praise and song,

only those who remember the language of

 

stone will survive/thrive, love. 

 

To the Standing Rock Rainbow Warriors-

women, men, children

PRAYER

 

Remember this,

a prayer,

humanity keeps

doing it century

 

after century-

remember this,

that our DNA

grief doesn’t

 

multiply-

remember this,

the next 7, 14, 21, 28

Generations don’t

 

carry this burden,

all children are

Sacred-

remember this, 

 

remember this

remember this

we humans are

One.
