The coyote song

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

"

We need to be free to learn and dream. If we get lock in a cage. We are just waiting for death.

"

 The coyote song


Beautiful Lady dressed in a black dress.
Blue eyes like a clear river.
Held the talisman in her hands.
Against her heart.
Her red hair blew in the Seaside breeze.

She whispered run Coyote run.


She put the talisman around my neck.

I’m being strangle by so many rules.
I can’t find my way back.
I got lost on my journey.


My lady Shaman brought me close.
We danced upon the naked beach.
She felt my disease.

She told me.
You are black in spirit.
The Coyote spirit must run free.


The Coyotes were my friend.
Few of us are still roaming.
I yearn to find my lost comrades.

Run with the wind.
Break down the paper-thin wall of bullshit
Surrounding my life.

Be free.
Howl and yell at the moon.


When your dreams die.
We are just waiting for death to free us.


My blue eye friend.
I held her tightly.
I smelled strawberry in her hair.
The cold of the California night had.
brought us closer together.


She gave me long and sweet kisses.
Maneuver her body around.
Lifted her dress.
Wrapped her legs around me.

Her eyes looked deep into my soul.

She whispered.
You are blinded by lies and storytellers.
You can’t see beyond this day.
Your hope has disperse into the wind.

Don’t wait for Death.
He will come soon enough.


We fell asleep on the beach.
The ocean music brought a peaceful sleep.

I dreamed.
I’m running with the Coyotes.
I’m dancing and howling at the moon.
I’m swimming in joy.


The morning light appear.
My woman of kindness.
Kissed me and told  me goodbye for a time.

She raised her hands to the sky and she told me..
Be free.
Don’t be a dog on a chain.
Brake the chain of disappointment.
Don’t be afraid of what is in front of your life.


I watched my protector, my friend and lover
drive away.

I looked at the sun, the ocean.
I thank the lord of life and death for her.


I hear the Coyotes.
They are calling out my name.
Telling me to attack life like a wild beast.

Eat flesh, taste the blood.
Allow it to penetrate the heart and soul.

Be strong.
Die for a  worthwhile battle.

Not like cattle.
Being led to slaughter.


The Coyote can’t be tamed.

Us human are being led to the slaughterhouses
by wealthy and powerful men.

Escape.

Run with the wild beast.

'Escape.
Run with the wild beast.' These word are my favorite. As stated in the poem, you must not let life taunt you. To live , is the very point of being alive; as Coyote live life to the very last, Until their hearts beat no longer.
Great poem!

This has a surreal quality to it, but also echoes many truths and realities throughout. You pen wisdom behind some terrific imagery. Thank you for sharing such a soul bearing, personal write.

I like it, very magical atmosphere. It seems like coyote is your spiritual guide animal perhaps? =)

For me, it has been (many times) this misunderstood animal, 'Twilight Walker', a wolf. I myself write often about wolves and how they run free and wild.

Let your poetry run free!

Thank you for sharing.

Your welcome. :)
I completely relate to this message, my friend, as I'm sure you know me enuf by now . . . this need for freedom can be so powerful, even devoted love can feel cloying & suffocating. I love all the different ways you show us the interactions both by direct description & also by imaginative metaphor with a native flavor.

It felt as if the shaman or this lady was part of the sky and disappeared in day light. Kinda magical. There were some loose words though.
