Stirring- a Collaborative Poem from Christine Ray, Aurora Phoenix, and Kindra M. Austin

image002

Your swift flowing water

Elusive, quicksilver

Brushes past my shores

Licking

my roughing grains

burgeoning

a flash flood

Tributaries

cut into earth

New veins carry fresh lifeblood

Awakening me

from long slumber

longing rippling outward

concentric circles

lapping

by turns urgent

and languid

your ebb

begets my flow

See the colors of infant life

sprouting

hungry

brilliant resilience

inherited DNA
