Yellow Prairie Flower

  Familiar songs weaving their way

throughout our lineage -

reminding, healing, and holding

us together.


  Singing us stories of survival - saying out loud in the

face of Pure Evil;

”We see you and know your horrors,




  Like the sound of my brother

who traveled all the way from Spirit’s world

in his Grandmother’s old canoe

just to put his arm around me

when I was in need.


   These songs are the unbreakable ones.

They have made my suffering

into a bow string,

and my body into

a straight and deadly arrow.

She came to us on a lazy Mother’s Day afternoon,
Carrying the story of our family between her brow.
   The passages of the births and deaths of our Ancestors
Etched in lines on her hands and face.

…Stormy nights I woke 

to the scent of you visiting me yet again,

  Meet me there - our place - on the illuminated


where creation and humanity meet.
