The River


just before dawn
the river Silence
beckons,
I dive in
 listening
to ancient psalms 
sing their poetry
tapping deeper
 touching the pain 
swimming through
to the still, silent pool
reaching for a whisper 
a single metaphor,
murmured underwater
an echo…. maybe joy 
gasping,
and coming up
for air 
then seeing
the sun rise
hearing the sky shout, 
 
I breathe,
find a voice,
and sing.

  1. Beginning the second week of the April poem a day challenge, I have begun to wonder why I am doing this. For the wonderful warmth of the very words you speak. Thank you for the lift.
