giizis stretches across akiing

on days like this i see how the shadows are long

as it reaches from the edge of the treeline to the other edge of the lapping water

i want to walk along this shadow

balance with my extended arms reaching from finger tip to finger tip

as my open hands linger in the open air kissing the wind

i imagine nanabush was just as careful as they walked the earth

balancing between the light and the dark

peering into the shadows

facing the part of oneself that stays hidden

if only a glimpse is enough

calming the darkness to stay in the light as giizis

shows the way of stretching across akiing

 

* giizis sun

* akiing the land
