On the evening of the full moon just last week
I escaped to the Columbia River for a walk.
The sunset touched my heart.
The moon rose from the horizon and I jumped for JOY.
How I love walking along the river on a full moon evening.
A New Dream (Wuski A-Baw-Tan)
I have seen the rain speak
and the wind dance
I have seen the lightening knife
cut the sky
I have seen the hills
at the first light of day
to the Southwind People's ear
I am happy now
I am no longer thirsty
I dance a warrior dance
I am not sick, I am free!
This night I dream a new dream!
Now, I come to drink the stars!
~Jennifer Pierce Eyen
This poem was found when I visited the southwest earlier this year.
I love the concept of drinking the stars.
I dream of walking under a night sky in the desert one day
and drinking the stars and the moon while sand sifts
through my toes.
