the morning made me smile
by waaseyaa'sin christine sy
i was up so early.
the smells outside at around 5:30 were amazing. literally had to stop just outside the door, inhale deeply. i took a few steps and had to stop again to repeat. stretched. the smells were that good. the feel of cool air.
mmm. to relish the moment.
inspired more prayer.
i think it was the smell of dew on green in morning sunlight sprinkled with the songs of about four different bineshiinyag. cement and asphalt in there too, no doubt.
i wish i knew how to say, the morning made me smile, in anishinaabemowin.
bineshiinyag = birds
anishinaabemowin = anishinaabe language
