Wonderland (When the Leaves Fall)

Grey Fox Trail Stone Rows (2013)
Leaves fall from the trees and a Wonderland appears
You can see the long distance stretch of rows of stone
Snake through the wounded forests of this part of Turtle Island
And I wonder, “What was gathered there?”
And I wonder, “What song was sung in Thanksgiving?”
And I wonder, “Who lit the sacred fire
That sent prayers to the Creator and the Spirit of the Deer
Gathered in that Sacred Circle of that Sacred Fire?”

Deer Tobacco Sacrifice Stone (1996)

Remnant Lowbush Blueberries along Remnant Zigzag Stone Row (2006)
