River Of Memories

A River Of Memories Carry Me.
Can a river
of my rushing,
crashing thoughts carry me forward.

I ask-
will I
ever learn
to live in the moment,

l o n g e r

than I do
with
these memories.

The river
of my life flows forward.

In
and out,
along,
besides,
in spite of,
through,
over, over, ever over.

Memories.

Banks of my soul have been acted upon.

Softened,
revealed,
concealed,
shifted,
shores of
your affects.

Here and there
in places still,
discovering still,
that I have not found yet today, not yet.

I reach for
the smoothing, soothing
c u rv e
of your hip

but the moment
holds
only the chill
of loss,
of remembrances,
and reverence for
a love of gentle places.

  1. and i mourn the loss of not continuing to appreciate your personal writings and getting a glimpse into your lovely soul, even tho i never knew you at all. it’s funny what strangers manage to steal from us. i’m so sorry for your losses, and wish you the very best with everything, including your new blog.
