Places...

letting sunshine just come and go
it comes and it goes
but I know it is just over the edge and it is coming again

watching the river go but stay
inside the riverbed
it stays
but it is always going

the wind blows over it all
and flips tiny rocks
into rivers
and icy water off of edges
and clouds over the sun

i watch it go by
and i sit inside of it
and feel myself a part of it all
a part of the going
a part of the coming
a part of the flipping
and the offing
and the overing

i sit inside of it
eyes closed
mouth turned up
serene with the changing
