Waiting for the beat of Pow Wow drums


Blue iris with petals unfurled

Hues of the pond (behind the Pow Wow grounds)

Tiny birch curl

Anishinabe elders teach "Water is the lifeblood of our Mother Earth."


Where beach-goers once lingered...

Out to sea

Waiting to sway in the wind with the distant beat of Pow Wow drums in Baraga (a little over one week from now)

    Anishinabe elders teach “Water is the lifeblood of our Mother Earth.” I wish everyone on the planet would abide by this truth. May ancient wisdom fill the earth.
