a personal collection of original music, photographs, observations and other random stuff that happens inside my head…

Skagit River, Northern Washington State, USA

Anishinaabekwe, the Daughter,  You are the keepers of the water.
I am Nibi…water…the sacred source,  The blood of Aki, Mother Earth,
The force filling dry seeds to great bursting.  I am the wombs cradle.
I purify.

Nibi, the life giver…  Forever the Circle’s charge
I have coursed through our Mother’s Veins.  Now hear my sorrow and my pain
In the river’s rush, the rain…

I am your grandchildren’s drink.
Listen, Daughters, always.
You are the keepers of the water.
Hear my cry,
For the springs flow darkly now  Through the heart of Aki
American Indian, Ojibwa, Minnesota
