Windy~ June 22

I’ve been waiting all week

It’s just one show

But, ugh, these boys

Loud, loud boys

Arguing over a video game

Then it’s over

Laughing like hyenas

I can’t hear my show

I can’t concentrate

It’s only a show

This makes me happy

This makes me whole

Windy ~June 18

I’m hearing the same tune

Over and over and over again

A little repiticious

Don’t ya think

Just a few more days

The tune will change

All will be right in my world

Every baby where they belong

For now

Dibik-Giizis dash Niin~

She matches her Nokomis
Way up in the sky
A sliver today

Tomorrow they will grow
Slowly through time
Till they are full once again

Miigwech Nokomis Giizis!

Treasure Hunting~

Three generations hit the rummage sales
One rainy Saturday morning
My mom looks for items
My daughter looks for things
I look for treasures!

She said things that made me chuckle.

“Come sit on the davenport.”

“Arco coffee is out of this world.”

She was a strong and fearless woman.

“I was not afraid to cook for a Five Star chef.”

“I spoke my mind when women were quiet.”

She thought she was sneaky.

“Don’t tell your mother…”

“Does my breath smell like smoke?”

She was too frugal for me.

“I bought you some slacks for only a nickel.”

“If your not going to eat that I will put it in my purse.”

She had me near tears at the end of our time.

“That red-haired girl came to see me.”

“Please, take me home with you, please.”

All of it, and more, makes me grateful.

Thank you, Great-Grandmother.
