RIVER OF LIFE

Soft as a sigh,
the milky sky
lightens,
my visibility
hidden
by the rushes,
where I watch.
And listen.

Tragic events
unfolded,
blasting through
heart and home,
leading me
to today…
itching
to retrieve
my baby boy
who floats atop
the glassy slick
of the Nile.

Inspired by The Sunday Whirl’s Prompt #87: top, milky, glassy, unfolded, itch, blast, rushes, slicks, listen, sigh, lighten, tragic, and visibility; and posted on Day #44 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.
