It's occurring! The sky swims with pink fish
dragonflies relaxation on their wings
the rocks take their masks
by opening their limbs
stretching their gray bodies into the water
and lingering the day I've been waiting for this second
when all sing of life concerned
I mean, it sings all day
. It solely takes me all day
to make it quiet sufficient
to pay attention

Typically, virtually now
when the skin of the water
rinses the royal fuchsia
and the mouth of the rocks

what they’ve recognized all day
and the jade water is getting darker
shifting downstream

stars that mild up the sky

over your eyes
at midnight

fluttering down
landing on my leg
life goes so fast
use your wings

to get water from the fountain
ran to an previous good friend and his

we every
and we see ourselves

all morning in our convention
when the river labored his magic

his music
singing our cells

taking over the river

join our hearts
to his bubbling fountain
have fun our lives

we beat our choir Crescendo

your breath

paint your body tribe
crushed river stones

lie naked in the water


vanishing mild
silver wrinkles
ri blood face

fill an extra jar
on your thirsty pal

sleeping outdoors naked

kissing you body
and blooming
in your blood

cheeks peeping
out of her shorts ] ascending
over rocks
his sunburned breasts
glow like lanterns
at dusk

Did I point out marrying the river?

Our ultimate covenant

the gold ring
with my finger
and teased with joy

So many lovely individuals
come to the river
singing gratitude songs

in the languages ​​they have discovered
from indigenous individuals
japanese indians
peruvian shamans

and cedars
