river moment

in this bed
that has become all too familiar
over the past many days
to the river I finally came
tall reeds red in the light of the sun
singing everywhere
song blending into song
the river itself full of singing
arms up
face full of prayers
looking at this sky
criss-crossed with ribbons of red
from the dying day
they came
filled the sky
filled the earth
too many to count
yet separate
quiet yet loud
and their song rose and fell
skimmed across the waters
filled the heavens
deepening and lifting
touching and retreating
for a moment
just a moment
I was one with them
one with their song
I was the song

just for a moment
