I find the spirituality of the First Nations to be inspiring. I love the purity of heart and the praise for Nature embe dded within it. This poem was written around 2003.

Nanabush and Grey Eagle

Let me be your Nanabush
Let me teach you the old ways
Brought down to us from the People of the Forest
Let me be your trickster and your guardian.
Let me be your Grey Eagle
Let me give you a new eyesight
Brought down to us from the People of the Plains
Let me be your tutor and your guide.
Let me be your Salmon Spirit
Let me show you the path of life
Brought down to us from the People of the Pacific
Let me be your sire and your spawn.
Storyteller On The Lake
