∞Pilamaya (Lakota for “Thank You”) – poem

Some people, you meet
in summer’s prime then they leave
by first snow. Some spend
three seasons–maybe all four
b`fore they flee. The ones who
stay for seasons upon seasons–
’til hairs atop head silver
completely & there were
hundreds of reasons for them
to go but stayed. I’d like to say
Pilamaya! Pilamaya to the latter,
to all! All added stars to my night-
sky, so-much-so that it looks like daylight.

  1. Eva, a marvelous poem in all respects. Very impressive. With a small claim to Choctaw ancestry, I thank you for adding this new word to my vocabulary. Now if I could just hear it pronounced. I will assume it sounds something like this: PEEL-uh-MAH-yuh. Am I close? 😛
