In O’odham and English, describes the annual seasons and rhythms of the desert as movements of wind, rain, and flood.

 

In these poems, in O’odham and English, Ofelia Zepeda describes the annual seasons and rhythms of the desert as movements of wind, rain, and flood. These poems, personal and deeply rooted in the land, celebrate life lived, not just “close to the Earth,” but inseparable from it. One comes away from Ocean Power with the thought that any other way of living is irrelevant. This is how we were meant to be, and there are people in the world who still live this way.
