muddy water, verdant earth

the captive closes her eyes..


she floats on clouds


memories sweep the valley like a swift breeze

that whispers that the river cannot take her soul


rushing waters usher the past

forward into the present


there is a girl child on the bank--

emphatically she speaks,

"the lion can bite you

or the lion can lick you."

Hi, David and Stu,

Thanks for commenting and I'm happy you both liked it. I wavered a bit about even posting this one, but I'm glad I did.

this is excellent. your writing is so beguiling and intriguing, and so open to interpretation (not vague in a bad way, just i always feel when i read your poetry that you are merely spinning a web that can be traversed in many different ways).
