This One...


and all the rivers I have loved

my time, this flowing

     with its irregular heartbeat

moments whitened against stones

pausing to send edged light

coded mail, the quick eddy, there

too fast, again and again.



Somewhere

under the rush

a low flute

reshaping the air.

  1. I am a lover of rivers, too, so this speaks to me very deeply, Lorna. I love "moments whitened against stones" and the "edged light".And that "low flute, reshaping the air." Wow.
