you said the river

you said the river
can heal itself if we give
it time – it’s never

a perfect formula when

we are new england-

we are new england-
bound, routing through america’s
backyards – river, swamp,

fences, and glimpses of freedom
here and there, an ocean calling

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: new england

the mind is crowded
at a level entirely
unsustainable –
you are looking
at me from across
the river, at least

together and
apart, navigating
by the same sun,
moon, and stars,
cupped by the same
wind and waters

by the river where we shared
so many kisses, the first april
moon still tucks
white handkerchiefs
into the fists of our forest –
a remembrance of winter’s
last surrender
