River To Sea; A Joining - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

At last the crushing weight
Of doubt is eased and this
Story must end.
All stories must end so new
Ones can begin
No one will speak the final words so
I will
The venom has leached
And no longer dangerous

I am unrecognizable in this stillness
My heart and senses deeper,
I move as an old river, slower
With intent over the same stones I ignored
In more effluent times
Feeling for a texture that
I ignored in haste,
I am clear now
And see my estuary for what it is
A joining
