Gila River Review
Alisha Hubbell

Graceful

Mother, holding your hands

I discover familiar shapes in your

bulging, blue veins.

In the mountains, valleys, and gullies

of the skin

I see hands

of a lover,

and a giver.

The peaks of the fingers are rough and ragged

like withered wood.

Subtle, immovable lines are carved  

into the bark.

The five darling branches you have

nurtured

are deeply rooted in your veins.



Alisha Hubbell: "I was born and raised in Lupton, Arizona and moved to Gilbert, Arizona to obtain my Associates Degree in General Studies. I plan to go to the University of New Mexico to become an architect. I enjoy drawing, painting, fishing, and going to shows."
