November Runs

Posted to Poetry




From the River
To the sea
We parted from the land
Rain burst
Swollen tides
Roughed us in our journey
Sliding the little boat
Lifting it wrong and up
And high against the sides
The tree-lined banks
The frenzy of our remarks
Drowned out
Not delivered
The angry teeth of howl and wind
Ripping open skies
Shrieking water
Stabbing us in our eyes
Roared upon our ship
Adrift
Now lost
Until the ocean's
Gentle kiss
Greeted us before the dawn
And we awake by splash of dream
Ringed we are by the sea
And in it's mercy
The squall now over
Blue the sparkling water
