cry me a river

river bends

inked

with glistening pearls of water –

hydrogen, oxygen that

when separated

are life taking, life giving.

and together, life itself.

 

river bends

caressed

by steady flows of water

that swim protected

by clouds of flowering yellows

pinks

blues

purples.

by towering trees on

bladed greens

in crumbling browns.

but now

that’s all they are –

memories of colour.

 

river bends

carved

into the dust of

powder red.

once green and lush

now angry

evaporated of soul

life

moisture.

a distant remnant

of earth –

left only

with the bare essence of once

upon a time
