Happy Aleut

Happy Aleut

In this place between ice
And the empty blue
Of sky, I live gladly
Needing nothing

More than a strong spirit

There is oil enough
Until we hunt again
Melt is on and today
A song sparrow came

To tell me it’s stories

Should I be happy?
I know satisfaction
In the knots of this baidarka
Of the many times
Seal has lay across it’s bow

And today is a good day.
