Poems by Carol Ladas-Gaskin

Salmon Song

My ancestors sang their bones
up this same dark river
skin flayed and scarlet
a banner of passion abandoned
on the river stones.

Bones of my ancestors carry me
threading a needle through time.

Flesh of my ancestors feeds me
a flame licking upstream.

Spirit of my ancestors carries me
a seed in the arms of the wind.
