As the sun breaks the day

I hold my palms towards Father Sky

Inhaling gratitude as the sun beams caress my skin

Niawen

 

I am alive

 

Soft breezes whisper love into my ear

Soft raindrops clear my mind

Spiraling rivers carry ancient knowing within its swells

Pushing new life force into my spirit

 

Teiethinonhwera:ton ne Ionkhi’nistenha tsi Ionhontsa:te 

(we greet, thank, and acknowledge our mother earth)
