In the Veins [Poetry: Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects Book Series (Vol. 4)]

Refection of Veins from Dr. Carol A. Hand, Anishinabe poet:

We are inter-connected branching vessels 


carrying the pain of the earth back to source 


like the roots of the sacred cedar


to heal and breathe new life into being? 


Have we been forced deep underground, 


pressurized through the weight of suffering, 


to become a treasure sought by others


who don’t understand that we carry


healing powers in the wisdom of our ancestors?


Sacred life interwoven with sorrow, blood memory, in our very DNA
