taking the waters

 

SAM_1203 (2)it has taken the longest time
crawling my way back here
feet dragging slug trails
through dry grass and leaf,
but i am here now
cupped hands to thirsty lips
cool water finding flow
down chin and neck
and wrist
and i hold this holy water
pooled behind my teeth
make my tongue a living raft
to carry me on.
to carry on.
