winter haiku d'hiver - the windigo = le windigo





the windigo
in Manitou's moonlit eyes
your frozen eyes

le windigo
aux yeux froids du Manitou
tes yeux gelés

The windigo is a mythical creature or trickster of Canadian indigenous people who freezes to death anyone who dares look at him.
Le windigo est une créature mythique ou l'arnaqueur des indigènes du Canada qui gêle à mort quiconque ose le regarder.
