Lovers…by the river…

Love had swept me clean
and filled me with poetic silence.

I tried to repeat your strength,
I tried to whisper it still.

I stood strong in the un-poetic wind
and sought only, simply, to remember
those things.

Your arms, the river, the light
a raging smile…
and the kiss.

It echoes through me still
even you so far away, so far away…

Today the sky was so blue
and the clouds a deep utterance,
a swiftness of light.

And yet, I saw you there, like the
old man saw you there
by the river…waiting.

I fell.

And you caught me.

Listened to Sarah’s Christmas album this weekend, so beautiful, and perfection for my holiday mood this year…this song, one of my favorites, sad and sweet, lovely…great remake of the Joni Mitchell original.
