River Song

 

 

Went whitewater rafting last week…

 

 

 

 

Clear tears begin to flow
dampening my cheek skin as the river courses through me
deep inside
my darkness

My gaze rests upon the sun-dappled water
pulse slows
time ceases
and I no longer exist by myself
alone

I wade into her shadowy splashes
and the liquid mercury-colored ripples part in welcome
to me and
my raft

Sun streaks through the mirrors
of her shallow dances with rocks and muddy bottom
illuminating the way I am to go
within

Two unconscious hours meander along Her banks with me
as I paddle
smiling, sun-blessed and damp
both without and
within

Tonight I remember Her silently
as I warm by the campfire
flames

Renewed
