MERE AND FILLE

Day was at completion
Tasks laid down to rest
Gatherings ewered
Dryings bundled and hung
Containers collected and hoarded
Bead work fastened and strung

The wood was muggy with damp
The air heavy with dusk
The greens celeried but winter readying
The florals darkly pigmented
The wind exerting flow

The mother corpulent and matriarchal
The daughter full-hipped and plentious
Concluding their swim and soak
Collecting toward the shore line
Appraising steps and unmderpinnings

Time for tales approaching
Dyad dried and frocked
The clan impending
For now they chambered chants
Incanting as they convoyed
Extolling life.
