Made Of Water - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Suspended above

on a little rickety bridge

that almost
touches the water

we watch
time & time again

as water
caught & curved

by rocks
& boulders

forms a woman
& then un-forms

breasts appear
and then float away

the curve of a hip

and faster now

urgent & demanding

& un-shaping

“Reminds me of me! ”
You say.

I say
“...all the way! ”

We return to the hotel
where we recreate
Mother Nature.

Me all hard rock
& boulder

you a woman
made of water.

    Dear Boulder...as always, you go right to the heart of connecting nature to love, love to nature, without a single misstep or stub of toe! Water (Report)Reply
