Seminole Wind

Seminole Wind

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Seminole Wind‘ ~John Anderson~

I think this song is fitting since I’m at Black Bayou Lake for this picture. There’s such great vibes there and it’s really inspiring to me. I’ve always found beauty in non traditionally scenic places, because it’s not always about what I see…..it’s how it makes me feel! Since I’ve always lived in the prairies, where everyone says it’s flat and boring, I’ve always made a point of seeing and feeling my surroundings completely. I love the prairies, the huge sky…..wide open spaces and the vastness that makes a person feel very small in this world. So, when everyone’s going to the mountains to sightsee, I’ll be in the prairies, the deserts, and the swamps…….where there’s lots of beauty, if you choose to see it.

I’m wearing ‘Lea’s Biker Jacket’ in black from RKKN, here, along with the add on shirt. It’s available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Stacey Jeans’ are from *Just BECAUSE* and available at FaMESHed.

The ‘G1204’ is from tram and one of my all time faves.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Paris’ set of poses from Ana Poses.
