“The earth has received the embrace of the sun and we shall see the results of that love.” —Hunkesni (Sitting Bull) Hunkpapa Sioux, 1831-1890
Icy rain, so treacherous yesterday
adorns each tree, diamonds
winking in brilliant January sun.
Even the chill air can’t dampen
the fire glowing from every branch
each tree a silver lady in her finest gown.
