This Was Forecast

By Karina Bush

 

In a night field

Stands a woman

Dressed in black

By a tree

Children are afraid of her

She is my Grandmother

 

Closer

In a night field

Stands another woman

Dressed in black

By a tree

Children are afraid of her

She is my Mother

 

Birds from their fields

Circle above me
