Grass Skirt


Grass Skirt


Kilt clan patterns

Mother’s hands twisting string for homemade

video to keep tradition strong

Once made from plants now plastic too

Scratching identity from legs to ankles

Calling out for head dress and for beads

Bare feet beating dance on earth

Sway and swish

Past, present and future steps

Given by my mother to say

You are grown

    • Virginia – the image is not mine, but one selected by the editor of this site from somewhere else. I do have some photographs of course in my own collections too.
