napowrimo – niizhtana shi niiwin (twenty four)

after that long winter of being cooped up in the house

dreaming of early sunrises and late sunsets

those ideas have mingled long enough

it is time for birthing


fingers hover over a keyboard

with sticking keys and dirty edges

those ideas have turned into



details ready to be written


at times it is like that lake melting and everyone is taking bets

other times it is like projectile vomit as fingers tap away 50 wpm

and if i’m luck then it is steady like sap running in the sugar bush


but at day twenty four

i am weary

i am hitting that block like a long distance runner

this is the time when you gotta push

on through to the finish line

six more days
