Still Night Lodge

Still night broken by call of soul owl watching over the lodge of my father's brother. The next world awaits my uncle. His walking clothes prepared. His feather oiled to a brave sheen. Knife freshly sharpened in beaded sheath. He calls to owl. I'm ready. The women begin the journey chant. My father dances with joy tears. 3/30/14
