tanka--
small songs I sing
to join
my voice to other voices
hidden in the grass

Long Shadows

Among the haunting images of animals—bison, bear, and spotted horse—painted on the walls of caves, human handprints catch the eye. Careful measurement reveals that most are the hands of women.  Could they be maker’s marks?

dancing on the walls
the sister
I never had
touches my hand
