I Am Water



am water

I am a mountain stream flowing

fresh and cold, clear and bright smoothing

stone edges, into a mosaic of painted hues adorned

by moments of my heart breaking and learning the inner

truth of my purpose to write until my bony fingers ache, to love with

every thread of my tattered soul. I am water, I am woman, I am a poet,

a dreamer, magic abounding in the most unlikely of places, a stranger’s

smile, the bloom of a rose, the flutter of a hummingbird’s wings.

Miracles, a painted dawn morning, a stormy sky

a dragonfly, a bird that sings, me.

  1. This may be from 2018, but it’s all the more relevant now, Linda. It’s like an affirmation, an expression of will to continue, to always reach for tomorrow.
