Native poetry, in both North and Central America, is characterized by the use of a trope that issues from a generally shared worldview-namely, the earth's colors as a metaphor for the relationship between humans and nature. To illustrate this literary and cnltl~rapl henomenon, I have chosen to analyze the worlcs of two poets of the same generation but of different genders and cultural heritages: Joy H (Tulsa, Oklahoma, born in 1951) and Humberto Ak' Abal (Totonicapiu, Guatemala, born in 1952), of the Creek and Mayan Ic'ichk ethnic groups, respectively. As geographically and linguistically distant as the two poets are, they both display a consistent and highly significant use of this trope.
