The Morning Reading: Paula Gunn Allen

The newly re-launched California Authors site remembers Native American writer and scholar Paula Gunn Allen who has passed.

Even so, the spirit voices are singing,

their thoughts are dancing in the dirty air.

Their feet touch the cement, the asphalt

delighting, still they weave dreams upon our

shadowed skulls, if we could listen.

If we could hear.

--Paula Gunn Allen, from "Kopis'taya, a Gathering of Spirits"
