earthweal OLW 133 and Suzanne’s Calm Reflections — Magnetic Poetry 082622 — life symphony

resized grand river flats 110321

A thousand-life symphony’s run,
bare beauty heaving, beat rain like
raw, honeyed mist sprayed in Spring.

Never swim fast through storm how I like;
if I sit here and dream, you want me.
Cool skin boils when frantic fingers drive.

Water woman watch and chant
language of blue for what was and why;
she cry to live, not rust.
