tonight the river ran quietly
so quietly
we couldn't breathe deeply
the climb up & down the bank
the intense purple sunset
even the busy ice cream store
            let us breathe deeply
but the river
the river ran so quietly

it spoke of grass jelly
and the tears that almost came to a. . .

how does the river run so quietly?

generosity and relationship
the river is abundant
acquiring only to give away
the river connects us
looks like affection
kindness
empathy
and makes an apology

tonight the river ran quietly
as the fabric of life
flowed in goodness
in love
in peace
belonging
