Letters to Minnehaha Creek: Prelude by Victoria Peterson-Hilleque

I am coming to you now.

When Dorothy was alive, I did not

 

think of you as much more

than the scenery

 

framing our friendship. She

noticed when you were low

 

or high or altered.

Do you save anything?

 

Do you keep some

of the world in your watery

 

heart? Do you remember her?
