Donna Snyder – 2 pieces


a couple of fine earthy pieces by one of my favourites. enjoy savour – meant to be read and re-read for sure

Rainbow girl

hagoneh thank you
it is good

time is that way leaves you behind in a velvet blouse looking at
silver hairs in the mirror the young ones call you shimasani
grandmother ancient one one who talks for all the
powerful one
mother of the world

Coyote grins he knows moonlight will come again spread its milky fingers
over rock and mesa Rainbow Girl bows into the wind
earrings dangle turquoise teardrops for her people

the future is a blue glass bottle break it if you will or use it to
catch tears to drink when rain forget it loves sky and brown
bugs no longer crawl
across paintings in the sand

    Thanks a lot for sharing. Will send these pieces to colleagues who teach creative writing. They can do much about both poems, especially rainbow girl and its exotic matters.  Enjoy  the rest of the weekend, and God bless.  e/s
