quiet river woman
© 2013 by margaux delotte-bennett

not all rivers start below
some find their source on high
cascading down the side of a rock
not unlike her face

quiet river woman

keeps pace
with streams that fall
water gushing down paths created
by a current on the run
droplets tenderly lit by the sun
as it kisses the face of the breeze

quiet river woman

is pleased to know
that there is a cerebral stillness
a clarity of mind only achieved
when the sound of water
in motion
splashes through the spaces between
and word
and deed

this very notion took seed as the
quiet river woman
soaked in the beauty
and felt freed

I love it! It’s hard to imagine the natural world when stuck in the urban workplace. Reading this I can feel the spray and the rumble of the river. Thank you!

I was transported back in time, I could feel again near that river … it is amazing, it has really touched me
