Haiku My Heart friend trade

Day and Night
Creation Gourd rattle

night sky shooting stars
silver grandmother moon
 grandfather sun shine 
This wonderful gourd rattle was made and painted
by Joe Spadoman.
He sent it to me as part of an art trade we did.
 Joe told me that
in Ojibwe culture, it is said that the sound of the rattle
is the first sound that the creator gave mankind to hear.
My gratitude to you
dear Joe for this wonderful treasure.
 I will use it when necessary to
awaken my muse.
