Day Five: Hopi Pink Flour Corn

...of dark amaranth gems
polished by prairie winds
and neglect
forgotten in the back of a dresser
made by my grandfather in 1924...
what silk comes from loss?
nourishment pulled from sun
furrowed
tucked and turned
burrowed
to tendered earth
to rise
cerise sweetness
again
