Listen to Nibi by Hope Osawamick written on World Water Day 2021
We are so blessed
Water is life
As I stand here looking out to the west
I see the the setting sun glaring on the melting ice
I feel my heart beat.
Whispering water spirits are watching over us.
I see a crack through the ice and it reminds me of your vessel, ready to flow.
Even when I watch the opening of the water from a distance, I see the ripple of nibi and it looks like a breath.
I am so happy.
I hear a story when I listen to nibi
It’s time to give thanks
It’s time for a water ceremony!
We come from the sacred nibi from our Mother who comes from the sacred Nibi of her mother . Living, growing and surrounded in Nibi.
Listening to the water
We are the water
We are sacred
Nibi is Alive
Nibi you are so beautiful.
I am grateful.
When the snow melts
It returns to Mother Earth
It brings new life
Re- starting another cycle !
