Karen’s directive: This week Pegman takes us to Manitoba, Canada. Feel free to use the location/picture supplied with the prompt, our take your own tour of Manitoba via Google Maps and find a view to inspire you.

Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the week’s location. You may write poetry, prose, or essay. Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ stories is part of the fun!

WHERE TWO RIVERS MEET

            Blue, purple and green snaked across the night sky. Stars twinkled through the brilliant colours.

            Full and drowsy after the evening meal, warmed by the fire, Tantoo laid her head on her mother’s shoulder. “Tell me about the lights, Nikawi. Where do they come from?”

            Nikawi stroked Tantoo’s hair. “They are the spirits dancing. See how they move in circles?”

            “Nohkum says they are our beloved ancestors visiting us and we should respect them.”

            “Your grandmother is a wise woman.” Nikawi’s eyes glittered. “One day we will dance with them.”

            “I can hardly wait.” Tantoo yawned, her eyelids heavy with sleep. “I heard the elders say our way of life will end soon. Is this true?”  

             Nikawi did not reply.

            The girl could not imagine it. The Nisichawayasihk had always hunted, fished and tended the land. In return Mother Earth rewarded their reverence. How could it not always be so?
