Gathering Along a Row of Stones

Gathering
Along a Row of Stones
That is also a Row of Prayers
Old Stories
Tell who placed this Turtle
Above this Bear on this Hill
And Grandmother tells you that story once again
As Grandfather lifts the turtle’s shell
And Grandmother takes the turtles head and presses it to her heart
Grandfather turns the turtle shell over, turns a turtle into a grinding slick
Grandmother begins to sing…
