River of Now

Skimming on a film surface
of a slow-motion river
I'm a clear tear on a
delicate twig balancing like a dancer-
Side to back to side, gliding, riding,
the brief sense of belief 
in what's underneath.
I dive in below the water
My mind floats gracefully above sky
to cold blue, black, then light...
No need for eyes, open or shut
Blindness extinguished by brilliance.
My breath paints strokes of God in my lungs
I push out a guttering cry
Now, inhaling now.

    A joy to read an older poem by one of my favorite poets Tamra. Love, Carol

    I picture many things when reading these. Birth, swimming, something floating on a stream. I really like the way you presented this. TL

    This captures nature, and human emotion ...all together as one. Great poem! ~:)
