Grey Cloud Woman, Mahpiyahotawin, brings life from delicate droplets. She transcends elemental phases to deliver the heavens to earth. Gracefully traversing a current of ocean air, Mahpiyahotawin gives her essence freely. Her mesmerizing, floating, flowing nature is a constant comfort. Depicted on the curves of a gourd, she shifts, moves her garment, and rain shimmers down. With the prolonged heat of summer, or the insatiable thirst of drought, I long for a cool shower over the dry land. With this piece, I honor Grey Cloud Woman, and call to her, asking her to bring the healing rain home.
