Coyote Was Here

Coyote Was Here (Stacy Wills, 2012)

is Tom Sawyer
with a brush,
making work
look like fun.

is Br'er Rabbit
in the briar patch,
getting what he wants.

is a trickster, dressed
in grandma's clothes,
carrying magic mirrors
wherever he goes.

is strong medicine;
 a wounding -
that heals.

-Stacy Wills (9/23/2012)

Coyote Was Here was inspired by the amazing and talented story midwife and songstress, Trish Bruxvoort Colligan.  It was she who introduced me to Grandmother Coyote during Week 3 of Women on the Threshold, a twelve week,  community online class offered by Abbey of the Arts.  


  1. As ever, Stacy, your art stuns and staggers me with its beauty, its depth, its relevance, its heart. Your heart. Thank you.

  2. Thank you, Ronna! You (and Eve) have had a huge hand in the creation of this blog. ;-) Forever grateful!

  3. Oh, Stacy! Thank you. I'm beyond humbled and honored to be sharing these weeks with you and the other wise Women On The Threshold. Blessed be Coyote and all his wily, waking-up ways, and your YES to the dance he invited you to, hand in paw in heart. xoxo
