The Dangers of Going with the Flow-Quadrille #132

A rocky stream never goes to bed,
flows like a blackout curtain
spilling me past the shallows
where I cling and gasp,
stranded on a sandbar
amongst a murky pool.
Blind to the bottom,
I undergo the river’s flow
yearning for an open mouth.

      Oh, that’s wonderful, Helen. Something to look forward to, for sure. I see she is playing near me this summer, but I’m not sure I can make the show. It’s a weeknight. Big fan of that amazing songwriter. Appreciate you stopping by and commenting.
