Mother River

Mother River, mastery of ripple and sound
and light, casting moving patterns along the stony ground
Thank you…

For your endless generosity of flow
dancing wildly over the rocks and sinking low and slow in the wide open spaces
For carrying the song and cradling the curling leaves 
as they journey onward, twisting and turning in your spiraling currents
For your gentle intimacy with these ancient stone story holders
as you shape each other day and night over the long count.
For the glorious way you reflect the rays of sunlight that pour through the tall trees
as they ebb and flow with the soft white clouds.
Mother River, thank you for nourishing and nurturing each plant and animal. 
each stone and human, each spider and butterfly that gravitates to your beauty.
