Remembering that rivers and
streams course through the
temple of my body—
Pooling, at moments, into love
then moving on.

Experiencing the pathways;
the mountains and valleys
of my story—
The artful meandering, the
merging systems of life
that bow to greet each other.

A melody, floating endlessly
through muscle, bone, sinew
A haunting tribute to
God's universe that exists
as me.
