Honoured and Remembered
Row upon row of poppies an endless sea
Bringing back memories for the living and
memorializing the dead
Brave men and women who fought side by side
In the name of freedom and peace, for their
Now they stand shoulder to shoulder lost in
their thoughts of that day
Medals shining under the bright sun, some shed
a tear as the bugler plays
Proud of our country, proud of our heroes and proudly
we’ll never forget

One moccasin lost among many; many never coming
Many worries, many tears, plenty of heartache and
Sleepless nights go on forever wondering about the
Only the darkness holds all the answers of where to
Many prayers hoping that the almighty Creator holds
her in His grace
And one day leads her home or leads her to Mother

Darrell “WindWalker” Scarrett is an Aboriginal poet from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. An Aboriginal Elder, after having read WindWalker’s early works observed: “He must walk upon the wind to gather the words he shares with people; much like the eagle that soars in the sky bringing back wisdom from the Creator.” Hence the name “WindWalker” was bestowed upon Scarrett.
Having spent his formative years surviving the mean-streets of the “core-area” of Winnipeg, Darrell’s spirit quickly rose high above the everyday surroundings and conditions of lack and despair, prejudice and ignorance, soon becoming a shining beacon of hope for all whose lives have been blessed enough to be touched by this “Spiritual Warrior”.
In the ’80’s and ’90’s, capturing a childhood he never had, he voiced (or more aptly “brought to life”) the puppets known to thousands of children and adults as “Desmond the Dragon” and “Forgetful Lion” (amongst many more) for the popular local children’s television show “Magic Mike’s Castle” (which ran “live-to-tape” a record nine seasons for a show of its type).
Scarrett’s anthology “The Wind Speaks” contains 28 moving and personal poems, reflecting a journey that we can all relate to: survival and thriving of the human spirit and condition. A line reflecting eternal hope from one of the pieces “Just Because” says it all: “Just because many times my spirit has been broken…my heart still has a beautiful song”. Another line from “Sitting On the Edge of A Tear” reflects his own inner strength: “For each door that closes another one opens and I will strive for more For I fear nothing or no one except for my Creator”. From “Heroes”: “Heroes believe when you leave this earthly place one day The only things you get to keep are the things you gave away”.
Darrell WindWalker Scarrett is a true advocate and inspiration of hopes and dreams for all, and is a true Hero for humanity.
