Nearly buried by the
art of survival
the remembrance was
brought into
the light once again
It remains
the tributary for the
river of longing
the place where
unfulfilled
destiny hides
The current never
slowed underground
in fact it raged with
white water
in the caverns below
though the surface
remained as
new glass
smooth and unbroken
rippled only by the
occasional raindrops
and the river still flows
searching always
for the sea
yearning to spread
beyond the
narrow borders of
its banks and
become one with
the tide, the waves
the warmth
beyond the dams
built by fear
the scent of
salted air
is caught in the
river's breath
brought by the
nebulous invitation
of the sea

Caroline, this is such beautiful imagery! I like this piece very much.
