Earthly Adornment


She celebrated the Goddess,

her body adorning gifts of earth and sea,

a leather pouch speaking of stones, and sage smoke

on a cold clear night

where stars ripe for reaching


like Paua shells and abalone

in a swelling ocean wave,

she harvested them,

loosening them with her fingertips,

spiraling purple, blue, green, brown

to wear them in her hair,

and by her heart,

with bands of copper,

and drops of turquoise,

and Green Stone from the sea.
