haiku

across moonlit sands

track the desert coyotes

Cree forefathers watch

I’ve signed up for the Blogging University Poetry 201 course through WordPress.  The first assignment is to write a haiku.  At night as Iie in bed and listen to the coyotes sing in their long yip,yip, yap, yipee song, I think about that same song being sung for generations and wonder about the relationship between the coyotes and the Indians.
