890

 

black gum.
this wet ball of soil like a shooting star.
a good place, dried by the wind of my wings.

      thanks, libby.

      this one is from the point of view of the eagle in the creek story of ‘how earth was made’ — the eagle throws a big ball of red soil onto the earth (which is mostly ocean at this point) so the creatures that are coming will have a place to live. the land he creates is too wet, so he flies over the earth to dry it with his wings.

      and black gum is a tea the cherokee use for healing.
