Mining the Silence of the Stones
(Sun Series #7)

Grandmother Knows

She notices the trees coming down not far from Big Elk,
soft maples and old cottonwoods,
and all the big houses going up
on the sad, bare side of the river,
with views of Her beautiful bluffs (for now).

Swirling clouds of returning blackbirds
prepare to land in the remaining treetops
overlooking all those plum buds waiting to burst.
