There is waiting. Heaven unites us.

Her eyes are watching,
Dark as blackbird's iridescent hugh.
Hands fondle the three-fingered foot.
I sit with legs-crossed
On earth-colored sky.
Night-blue blackbirds fly east and west.
Each keeps one red sun eye
Aimed at me.
Thank you Great-Great-Grandmother
For understanding
How important
A shadow
Can be.
