River, Wetlands & Sound – 1/7/18: Day 3 of Big Freeze – Photo by Toni Roberts

my

heart

lifelesscolddesolate

the cessation of all movement

absolute

stillness…

thus

my very being mimics

You…

my

Teacher…

my

Guide…

my

Orisha-Goddess…

Oshun

Queen of the River

She

Who causes the

Waters of Life

to flow…

the

gentle kiss

of

SpringRebirth

empty

cold

alone

 

whatever swims beneath your frozen surface

not for me to see…

gestationgrowthdevelopment

and the eventual

springtime

birth

of what is new and vital and necessary

for the continued success of this

mysterious venture

of 

fleshbound

spirit

following the 

Creative Directive

of an

Unseen Force

that

simply
