Suisunes Woman

when waters were clear
and elk foraged, fearless on 
high bluffs, she waited
for her husband

flowing swiftly 
with catch of salmon
he rode the western wind 
as her eyes guided him

while high above 
gathered the feathery 
souls of the old ones,

returned from sea, 
honored guests,
to the evening feast.
