Post 258: Black River, dreams, singing, crying

by Carol Bass



feel the river as it pours shallow over sandy earth
over and through the branches
reaching other tributaries
like the spine of your lover
keeping love flowing
flowing through my dreams
hearing the water’s voice
singing with the swimming snakes tickling the currents
my body floating downstream
such life coming from down deep
giving water to everything nearby
the river cries now
cries out to us
we’re coming
hold on
hold on
