No More River: 99/365 Poem 22

I’ve been poem-blocked
for the last few days.

Jet Lagging,
Tearing from the blooms

Where’s my RIVER?

It was there,
right in front of me
when I left 8 days ago.

And now,
how can I complain,
A FOREST explodes
filling the empty space.

It’s still rolling
below me,
but now I have to
walk a bit to see her.

come October
when this waking forest
returns to sleep
and winter returns
the emptiness

She will warm my spirits
Until the trees explode in their spaces

  1. This is on an unrelated note, but I wanted to tell you that I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (what is so odd about that is that I almost NEVER read books recommended by people I have never met!), and wow. I mean, wow. I don’t even like murder mystery books, but by the second or third chapter, I was so hooked, I HAD to know what happened. I just finished it yesterday, and I already have the next one purchased and started…. good reading!

  2. Yes! @ Ifer. What a reading/movie experience. So glad to hear you are in the crowd now. Last one arrives here on May 25th.

  3. Breathtaking photo.
    I like the poem too. I am sending your url to a poet friend.

    What a heavenly photo – and so true about the curtain of nature closing off our long views.

  5. @ OX and Susan thanks so much for the support and feedback,
