Light of Day
JD Couch, Jerriann Law and Charlie Littlebear have this collection of poems and lyrics to demonstrate how we feel about incidents in every day life; many refer to 'the light of day' giving illustration about this awesome event, but it is more than that; it's hope, seeking God and good, while retaining a light hearted-ness and continuation of what is best in life. Who is the light of Day and how will it effect you?
Most of the poems in this compilation were inspired from true life every-day experiences which had a huge impact on us and brought us our desire for penning their creation. For us, poetry has always been around in some way, shape or form. Sometimes, poetry is the best way to express how we feel; be it about a lost love or an unforgettable place we’ve been that inspired a poem; we write what feels right at the time, since a poem says it better than prose, in most cases.
Some of the poems may make you laugh; others may make you cry, and some may even make you a little angry, and yes, we anticipate this kind of reaction because we are not writing bland words put in a simple child’s poem, but poetry written expressly to get the mind gears turning, and the blood pumping, and the heart thumping, and the thoughts as well as feelings churning. So if something herein did jiggle a bit of anger from a reader; at least know we spoke with honesty, and know it’s hard to please everyone, but maybe that anger is due to being upset that the world is in the shape it is and you want to do something about it; if so, that has been our aim and we welcome you to join in.
We write from the heart; and yes, we’re expressing our opinion by our viewpoint of a given subject that inspired us to jot down each of these poems.
The main thing is; whatever Impression you had that was generated by our poems shows we succeeded in getting you to think, and that’s our greatest hope. We want you to
think; hopefully, you’ll come to see we meant only the best, and no harm to anyone or anything. We write to ‘wake up’ our audience to the needs in this world; we are all the future’s hope, in the here and now.
If it brought you to feel anything, you’re going to remember that fact. The majority of readers will walk away glad they read this collection, and will want to come by again, later on, for another reading. They were designed to make you think about your life in a whole new way, and maybe you’ll read something here that will help you cross that bridge and walk between an old way of thinking into a better understanding about your friendship with God and son, and the path to joy and happiness.
A collection of historic themed poetry, chants, essays and lyrics with links to the matching YouTube videos where readers can follow along and sing these original songs while being entertained by videos produced by Snowhawk Littlebear Productions.
This collection is not for children, due to the content being adult themed and strong language is sometimes used. Teens and Adults only please.
There are ecological themes, Native American themes, and political opinion is expressed strongly about issues that the authors are not bashful in stating how they feel; we hope to open a few eyes, but we aren't trying to offend anyone so if you think you wouldn't like open and to the point expressions of speech then don't buy or read this book, but if you are looking for a view of the unvarnished truth about the world and the things going on in it, then by all means, you will enjoy this collection.
Here is a sample from UNFORGETTABLE YESTERDAYS:
Love’s Rope, a Native American Proverb
The Great Father above, a Spirit Chief is He.
I am His warrior, and with Him, I hunt to protect.
He throws me a lasso, and its name is Love’s Rope.
With it, my path is never lost, for His lasso
Guides me where the river’s bank is green,
And the tranquil waters ease me.
He fills my soul with spiritual nourishment.
I eat and rest, and I am content.
When my heart was heavy with life's troubles,
And my steps were unsure, and I fell,
A’ho, Spirit Chief brought me to my feet.
His bow is strong, his arrow a sure shot;
It points the way toward an honorable path.
Although many moons may pass, one day, I’ll hear
The call of my secret name, and I’ll walk the Red Path.
Into the wide meadow of shadows, I’ll trek, without fear;
A’ho; though shadows lie thick on the ground; dark in wrath;
I travel sure-footed, for my heart-light shines bright.
The meadow of death lies between two great mountains;
Spirit Chief walks with me; no evil dares harm me.
This life's heartaches and material woes stay behind me.
A’ho; I shall be satisfied with all I find that is right.
Although, at times, bitter can be Love’s
Spirit Chief provides a walking stick for me to lean on.
He spreads a banquet before me;
A’ho, and even the mountain lion shares
With the buffalo calf, as the rabbit does with the coyote;
His touch heals my body;
My braids are soaked in scented oil.
All man’s woes flow away on the river;
Overflowing in generosity is Goodness’ bowl.
Bountiful and merciful is the Spirit Chief.
A’ho; Love’s Rope shall never be severed.
During the passage of my moons, humble is my dance,
Honoring Earth and Sky is the reason why I dance;
Joyful, I am, walking on the Red Path, that last day.
A’ho; I journey to the Big Tepee sky-village, and there
I’ll meet all my relations in the Happy Hunting Ground;
And we’ll live with the Spirit Chief in harmony,
And there we’ll stay in that peaceful meadow, forever-more.

Just Believe is a collection of poems and stories featuring unusual themes, having that sense that one should just believe and not ever give up on hope, or on the belief that much is out there that goes beyond common thought or reasoning, and
isn't always easily explained.
This collection is illustrated with artwork and photographs by artist and author Jerriann Law.
There are thirteen stories and poems included in the collection, which is the first in a series. There will be at least two and maybe more, coming.
Most of the stories were written in the fall of 2012, but some are older. Most include the date written, and the majority were co-written with my partner, Jerriann Law, and the rest are by her.
Just Believe features unusual themes, having that sense that one should just believe and not ever give up on hope, or on the belief that much is out there that goes beyond common thought or reasoning, and isn't always easily explained.
