Today, I understand the pain and fear
he must have felt
as a twelve-year-old boy.
The more I think of the story of my Father,
I am thankful for the good things
I have in my life.
To run in sub-zero weather
No coats, gloves, socks, shoes, hats,
To run with strips of blankets
tied around your moccasins,
wrapped around you hands,
not to have any food or water
for several days–
The spirits were guiding them
My father always told us
If you have spiritual energy
You can survive in this new Way.
(After half a century I’m understanding.)
