A-float

buoy

   the torrential rush–

   the merging of two rivers

   caught in collision,

   tumbling, falling,

  submerged and subsumed–

  then the stream faltered

  into a trickle,

  leaving only the salt

  of tears long dried out.

 sometimes

 the bouy bobs and drifts,

 still afloat

 in a small pond.

She catches a sob,

wiping the lonely tear

before it falls for him

again.

  1. I love the precise language, tight, ripe with meaning: torrential, merging, collision, tumbling, submerged, subsumed (esp subsumed, I’m adopting that one), faltered, drift, lonely, again. Beautifully done, Chevvy. 🙂
