River

C5873A88-4E8B-4209-9FE8-B63FCEAB9E9BWhenever I am near you, I can hear you calling me. I can feel you pulling me to you, and anticipate the time we will spend together.

I look at you, and marvel at the beauty of you. The way the warm sun glistens off of your undulations, as you glide gracefully, giving life to all in and around you.

I feel so at peace whenever I am in your presence. You are my sanctuary; my safe haven; my refuge from the world. Every anxiety, every worry, every care slowly ebbs from my head, down through my feet, as I give myself over, and feel you move over me.

As much as I wish I could, I know I can’t hold you. As you continue to move, I know that you belong to others. So I leave you, longing for the next time we can be together.

But shhh…I am the one here now, and this is my time.

  1. Your River verse is wonderful. Technically, the dual allusion of the river as a lover is so well crafted. Sensorily, the scene and emotions evoked are moving and oh so pleasurable. Well done and thank you for sharing with us.
