Desiduous Dream

Pull back the death,
Let it fall,
Detritus bound;
Reveal the power,
Vitality wrought
In fire and water.
Blacksmith and gardener.
Tiger and lamb.
Creator of strength.

Don't Make the River Home

Don’t make the river home.
Rivers can turn wild,
Tossing you about with no care for how you land,
Bashing your bones once you do.

Perilous potency
That rends limbs and souls;
Sudden fury to blind or behold.

The river can heal,
Sustain life,
Then jerk it away in a flashing splash.
Visit the river

Don’t make the river home.

Says, “I will watch with you
We will be watchers
Together.”

Take me down.
Let the river run
Through my wounds;
Cleanse;
Heal.
