River…

 

river

I went down
to the river
to rewrite my vows,
merging
with creation
beneath hallowed boughs…

I went there
to wash
my misgivings
away,
the sweet waters flowed
into sentient spray…

And in the mists
of consuming
repose,
way down
in the shadows
my heart
was exposed…

In rivers
of mourning
I consented to the pain,
beneath
living waters
I will drink joy again…
