you have made me feel immortal.
with flowers in your hair
sunflower girl, petals in your hair,
you are always found in the long grasses
waving in the summer air.
dreamcatcher above your bed, you save the nightmares
in hopes that you can tame them,
dispel fear as fiercely as a lion on game.
hemp belt hung with jade miniatures
the eagle, the bear, the stag
your heart drifting on the hazy days
and eagerly captivating the youngsters by campfire nights
with tales of the moon and the hare,
