Ish River

“Ish River”-

like breath.

like mist rising from the hillside.

Duwamish, Snohomish, Stillaguamish, Samish,
Skokomish, Skykomish . . . all the ish rivers.

I live in the Ish River country
between two mountain ranges
where many rivers run down to an inland sea.

– Robert Sund, March 29, 1979, Cloud House
