Native Wisdom, ed. by Joseph Bruchac
Snippets of wisdom originating from North America’s indigenous population.
What is life?
It is the flash
of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath
of a Buffalo in the winter time.
It is the little shadow
which runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset.
Crowfoot (Blackfeet), circa 1840
My rating: 4* (side note: very short and easy to dip into)
