Sky Openings - Rocky Mountains    

by Louisa Calio          

 

High in the Rockies I walked

While you remained in the desert

I reconstructed in post cards

What I could not send

The presence

I felt looking across cold crystal lakes

The quiet passing of a canoe

I thought I saw Chingachgook and his wife

Peering from behind those trees

As I danced down paths of leaves

To hidden tom-toms

Dreaming American Indian dreams

On once virgin lands.

 

You were a highlander

Exiled to the desert

Hoping for some rain to fall

I walked the mountains

Walked the mountains

Doing an ancient Indian rain dance.
