    water seeks its own level
    she thought

    ~not wanting to think
    at all~

    but the warm breezes
    brought the images
    again

    and the sensuous sound of
    waters slapping gently
    against the boat

    and the rocking
    motion in the noon heat

    aroused her mental

    & made the moment
    impossible to
    deny

    ~she had to flow ~

    yes, she thought,
    she knows how the
    river feels

    in search of the
    sea

    carrying with it
    all hope of the
    'joining'

    of becoming an even
    greater thing

    more than
    just a
    natural tributary

    ~true oneness~

    but even more than this,

    she wondered what
    it meant to be
    the fullness of
    a raging sea...

    on a course
    pre~determined
    by the divine,

    to merge with~
    spilling forth
    into~

    the
    boundless
    ocean

    blending
    dark waters

    ~always, pouring,
    always giving,
    always, more~

    enlarging
    the capacity
    for 'new'

    increasing the
    opportunities
    for 'free'

    creating
    more mysteries
    to discover, happily,
    in quiet caverns
    of the deep

    with enough
    treasures to
    share for 1000
    lifetimes

    ~the ultimate marriage~

    ~~~~~~~
    she lay
    sun kissed,
    in the silent afternoon

    lulled by the
    rhythm of the waters

    and dreamed herself,
    a river

    who had finally found
    the sea

    Alyce ... your work especially came to mind
    when considering separating the poets
    because of their sensuality ...

    whew gurl !!!

    sensuality at its best
    your words, your flow
    all on lock down ...
    if we went that way

    :heart:

    your touch

    is so very sensuous, my sista! So very beautiful the way you describe nature! Truly you are what you write. Exquisite poetry.

    Yes, you take us all there, and beyond, Alyce. We go willingly!
