on your breath
is wild rice, salmon and three sister soup
calling me home
in your hair
is smokey sweetgrass, cedar and sage
leading me home
on your skin
are lakes, rivers, creeks and oceans
bringing me home
anishnaabe kwe your beauty
is the rising sun’s rays moving along rocks
your laugh is wind in the trees
i celebrate you
dedicated to all life-givers.
remember who you are and celebrate who you are as women.
may you all be protected, celebrated and remembered.
