For Andra

Mountain Pond

The presence of water changes all.
Liquid undulations restore our souls.
Self-healing surface closes around
our brokenness—bearing us up.
Upon it, we bob in the current.
Rising.

 

This poem was inspired by the amazing writer and fine friend Andra Watkins. Thank you for who you are.
