That so long as we enjoy the light of day,
we may greet one another as kindred.

Pueblo Song for Rain

June 22, 2011

Whistle under the water,
Make the water bubble to the tones of the flute.
I call the bluebirds song into the water:
Wee-kee! Wee-kee-kee!
Dawn is coming,
The morning star shines upon us.
Bluebird singing to the West clouds,
Bring the humming rain.
