Dawn disguised as sorrow

Dawn disguised as sorrow 
Stands before the wintered plain

A wolf track fills with snow….

Crow lands….
Shaking its shimmering being
From the solitude of flight….


The badger watching….

Emos est se haa’e (One who whispers softly)

Emos est se haa’e, One who Whispers Softly, and its mirror name, Wind who Whispers Softly, represent the transitional times of dawn and dusk. These events contain a small spirit wind. This spirit wind offers a small door allowing the transporting of prayer toward and into both domains of the all-creator.

This name, in the language of the Tsistsistas (Cheyenne), was given by Lance to his wife, journalist Silvana Fracasso and is also the title of an upcoming publication in 2013.
