The River Running


In a field.

I am the absence, of field.
This is, always the case.
Wherever I am. I am what is missing.
When I walk. I part the air. and always the air moves in to fill
the spaces where my body's been.

We all have reasons for moving.
I move to keep things whole.
Mark Strand - Reasons for Moving




I am a river
Running
Swift and silent
To the seas
I will not
Stop I
will not
Say that
Time
Replaces
Sorrow
I will only say
I am a river
Running;
Between many mountains
and I will not
Stop I
can not
Stop I
should not
Stop for
one moment
One glance of sunlight
On my waters.
No,
I will only say
I am
a river running
Swift
and silent
to the seas
and I will not
stop til
fresh and salt
merge and mingle -
until there
is nowhere
left
to
run.
