the river god

thm_giulio_romano_jupiter_olympias
I am the waters 
of the rivers flow
I am the earth 
beneath the leaves 
of the woodland floor

I am the rocks 
worn smooth
by the river god 
as he makes sensuous love 
to the depths of my soul

I am the roots of the oak
that plunge deep in the earth
and protect the river bank 
from this god’s wildest passions

One thought on “the river god

  1. Very thought provoking. I will look at rivers in a new light. Flip
