like an ant we recover any fallen manoomin
each grain reminds us
how strong our ancestors are
and how happy they must have been when they discovered
new ways to process the food that grows on water

anishnaabeg ancestors always practical, always progressive
showing us more innovative ways

but first, we need to learn the traditional methods, recognizing
each grain is a treasure
