A leaf in the forest speaks…

Ji siix-mukws n̓iin

Listen carefully


A leaf in the forest is not something that’s given a second thought

It isn’t something that is significant

It’s actually the opposite

It floats, falls,  flutters gracefully to the ground


to be put with the ones before it

Soon to be forgotten and left alone

It will only be remembered if it can stick out among the others

if it can be unique

Alone singular unusual, but extremely special


in it’s own aspect
