The River Called Me

The river called me.eno scene

Its sun beckoned

Warming my shoulders

Calming my heart


Its cool waters gurgled

Rushing hurriedly

Between my toes

Giggling around my legs


Its rocks held me 

In a languorous embrace

Guarding the path

and showing the way


Shallow rocks

While in its sky bright

Birds swooped and swayed

Past the old cloud lady

With her hair in a bun


As its dragonflies darted

Irridescent flowers

In staccato kisses

Across the river’s face


And its swallowtail danced


A delicate ballet

Alighting gently

To tickle the river’s arms


All the while

The sun smiling sweetly

Holding out its hand

As the river called me

…Its Child of the Land
