Wig­gling Fish
I remem­ber my grandmother’s hand
In mine,
Warm as the sum­mer sun.
Her voice soft and sweet as
Ten­derly sewing my shawls,
and the moc­casins she made for me,
were the most beau­ti­ful of all
The day the Great Spirit gath­ered up,
My grandmother’s spirit,
In His great hand like a small dove,
and took her away.
A soft sum­mer rain fell in my eyes

Thank you Grand­mother,
Your Grand­daugh­ter,
Wig­gling Fish
