milky way

winter song
Changing Woman tilts the earth
this longest night

spring sunset . . .
a bat enters Evaki's dream

past lives 
Spider Woman weaves
a willow basket

Onata's breath
between stalks of corn 
children whispering 

Kipitaki’s transformation—
a coyote flicks her tail

Sky Woman descends
through a hole in the sky 
the sound of the sea
