Bottom of a Waterway Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan

Excited to have back again the wonderful word-smither Christy Birmingham to Spaces to Create!

Collaboration

Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan

Bottom of the Waterway by Jolie Buchanan collab with Christy Birmingham

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
Again.

Happy Rhythm Collaboration Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan

Take me away to a place that hums with
The same confidence that streams through me, running
From my toes to my wavy hair. I am searching,
And the track is one that has a finish line, I know, yet
I am not close enough to see it.

Take care you, for you are on the same journey,
Only you are a few paces behind me and your mascara is
Streaming down your cheeks.
Take the time to reset and replay the song that moves
Your bones in a happy rhythm.

I will find that place to call home soon – I think the
Chimney there is full of calm and my feet are full of
The warmth I desire when I open that front door.
How is it that the sun is shining and
No one around me understands the questions I am asking?
I will get there soon, and so will your wet cheeks.

Cheers To Creating!
