Riverine Love



Just when my mood…

and attitude..

had been ground down

to a core

more implosive than the

darkest of black holes…

At a time when good rest

had become more elusive

than our native panther…

This paddle and float

down the loveliest

of rivers…

A chance to just be…

Β To watch the eelgrass

and smooth water drift by

on a glassy paradise

has gone a

long way

to returning my


and my laughter

and my feelings of happiness..

to a level that I actually

feel like me
