Haiku Sonnet: They Came From Turtle Island

fall finds a chilled breeze
after the apple fest sends
tourists heading south

ojibway brothers
recall the sacred harvest
following father

into the canoe
knocking sticks pulling wild rice
preserving ancient

ways of forefathers
before cheap casinos and
bad river whiskey

a rice moon tells tribal tales
of a thousand years
