Bottom of a Waterway Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan
Excited to have back again the wonderful word-smither Christy Birmingham to Spaces to Create!
Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan
My mind goes to the river,
Only seconds before my toes follow, and
My thoughts rush over debris that sits at the
Bottom of a waterway full of tears.
My flesh is eaten by the liquid smoothness of
A river and of a light, with a newfound joy that
Resonates within my bones.
As I reach forward with my hands, I scoop up
The weeds that peak through the water,
The softness of my palms meeting them for
A thoughtful exchange of what to enjoy tomorrow.
Indeed, there is more to be had.
And, in turn, through our meeting of
Weeds, water and whimsy,
I tell myself that it is okay to start at the bottom
