if rivers and streams flow where you are
i’ll follow the way flood waters behave
surging with strength, it’s noise reaching far
into the sea, to be part of the rushing waves

if summers do come and dry you up
revealing the character that you manifest
rivers and streams will become empty
wilted tree crowns, bad for nature’s forests

request for rains follow as i pray
dark clouds falling as you drench my way
to the rivers and streams i have followed you
where your love resides, your home runs through

i’ll bring the past with me
and fly it across the clouds
i ‘ll gather enough dark pigments
and drop them into the sea
the salt of the deep blue ocean
will dissolve the aerial impurities
and into the floor of the azure waters
my past will be forgotten but repeated
in a hundred years more in another place
another time, to different people…
