Chiye tanka chiye

The Lakota, call Bigfoot Chiye-tanka "chiye" means "elder brother" and "tanka" means "great" or "big". In English, though, the Lakota usually call him "the big man".

UNFORGOTTEN

Have you ever experienced the felling that when apart from a loved one..you felt in your heart they were with you as if they really were there.

here's a Robert W Service poem about that.

Unforgotten

I know a garden where the lilies gleam,

And one who lingers in the sunshine there;

She is than white-stoled lily far more fair,

And oh, her eyes are heaven-lit with dream!

I know a garret, cold and dark and drear,

And one who toils and toils with…

El Monte 1967

I probably will never see El Monte on a

Sunday

or El Segundo washed by winter rain.

I never knew these towns existed-if they do,

outside of the obituary page that states

how many boys came home today in boxes

made of steel.

I'm well aware that some have died

from Chicago too

but it's the El Nowhere towns

I think about this morning

and the young men the whole town knew.

Today some children running down the hill

were…
