Today’s reading is about having the kindness to guard one’s speech, to take care to injure no one. There wasn’t much more I could add to that, but there was a reference to the North and Waboose that seemed suited to dealing with today’s harsh weather.
“The Chippewa call the North, “Waboose”, depicted as a strong, powerful Buffalo withstanding the effects of winter.”
The day begins with snowstorm,
but then cold rain, the icy breath
from winter’s cruel tongue.
We find no buffalo in the city, but
each of us looks within toward
our own Waboose. That is the face
we turn outward to mock the storm.
