napowrimo – niizhtana shi naawin (twenty five)

the crows are up and at it


and the sun is just barely up

i guess i am not the only one

excited for this time of renewal


i open the window wide

fresh air greets me

there is a mist lingering above the patchy grass

still in the midst of growing

it is a slow transition from winter to spring

mkwa mnidoo bear spirit wants to be released

it is time to get out there

i stretch and breathe in till all the little sacks in my lungs are filled

exhaling and letting go

mkwa mnidoo bmiptoo bear spirit runs

mkwa minwendam bear is happy
