Notes to Anna Mae Summer

(namesake of Anna Mae Aquash and Summer Breeze)

Dear babe in your mother's womb
walking pray vigils for Leonard Peltier
seventeen years ago this summer
what dreams do you dream now
born and unborn
were your letters read, were you told the stories
are you creating your own
deep within your Lakota heart
lives the rain from Anna Mae
and a cool breeze from Summer
may they lift your spirits when low
help when ready fly
