"Thunder Beings"
It was a real honor to have Mr. John DeBoer contact me regarding my poem"Thunder Beings". He is an independent music producer for Oyate Music that also makes beautifully moving music as a Native American flute artist. This poem accompanies his song "Thunder Spirit". This poem is also included in John Deboer's book "The Storytellers Flute Journey".

Spirit has blessed me greatly to share this special poem with so many. I am grateful and honored.
