River Listens

Bring my bundled troubles
to the riverside, still and quiet,
she listens, no judgment

Stay calm, she whispers,
change is coming, it always is,
this time will pass.

Know she is right –
she’s never lied to me yet –
walk away lighter.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. The whisper of the river speaks much wisdom. Happy to hear that you are listening to its soothing voice. It’s been such a scorching heat wave recently that I haven’t gotten out much. A water visit sounds perfect. 🙂
