Closing the Water Cycle

Age Group: Adult
Closing the Water Cycle
( O ) ( O )
When once you walked so softly
Over the deep moss of our miraculous bog
Where every step was as treacherous as proud
Did you feel me then, beneath your feet so light?
I had waited there for you so long...
where the only nutrition fell from the clouds
where the plants had nothing to eat but Light
where even some of the flowers were carnivorous
Everything was so desperately hungry there...
When you dip your paddle now into our rotten lake
dark waters of beautiful love though desolate its shore
Do you feel liquid me still holding you up above
with the promise I would never forsake?
To protect you from the predators around
To forever keep you from the dangers below
To preserve your Peace with my unwavering Love.
When you and my lover were chatting on the bridge
Talking about the weather, summer's end, and the news
Did you hear me in the river running through below?
Running cold over the jagged rocks and black ooze
Babbling over top of the secrets carried in the wind
my promise now to protect her peaceful heart
She’s so kind - 'best she never know.
When you feel Hasting’s fresh spray upon your face
Where I promised all you ever wanted
Do you remember saving my life in that place?
Before you cast me down again
into the dark waters of sorrow?
Part of me drowns in that undertow now,
and will drown there in every tomorrow.
I don’t go to that haunted town much anymore.
When you wade off Lake Ontario’s blue and noisy shore
Where the only music is the rhythm of our Love,
the gentle waves upon Her sand
Do you feel the ebb and flow of me still lapping at your thighs there
‘pulling us down again into our dark depths below
where I am still your midnight horseman,
and you are still my moonlight whore,
Your shine will forever dance upon the dark waves
of my heart there, off Lake Ontario’s blue and noisy shore.
- Lost sacred shoreline -
Everything moves in slow motion there now.
Last summer when you would not let me come
or let me go,
Were you running or hiding then from your fears?
Last summer when the clouds and rains
were so persistent
Did you taste in the incessant rain my salty tears?
This summer when it never rained
upon your once verdant place
This summer when your well ran dry,
and I made myself so absent
Did you look upon your parched pastures
and recognize my aging face?
Did you feel my absence in the drought,
in the rain that wasn’t sent?
Now watch the morning sunrise shimmer on the placid sea
There, downstream, where you’d think I’d finally be
You’d be mistaken if you thought my journey there complete
Because, by then, in the rain and mist I’ll again belong
Falling back down to my northern bog again
Enshrouded in mist, an ethereal liquid bird song
There I would wait for you forever
if there a chance for us again to meet
I’d wait forever there for the chance to support again
The light and beautiful weight of your pretty painted feet.
