Water Lily

I am famous: the sacred lotus,
a symbol of grace and purity,

                 though to croaking frogs I am no more
                 than a hang-out joint, an all-night store.

My petals enfold stamens of gold.
I float, serene, while down below

                 these roots of mine are deeply stuck
                 in the coolest most delicious muck.


How Rivers Flood                               

Bad news in Current Events:
you flirting with Judd Roth
while Mr. Hunt drones on
about natural disasters.

“When a river floods it
remembers its old path,
the one it used to follow
before dams and levees.”

He calls on me. I shrug.
Who cares about rivers,
you, these dark waters
rising fast inside me?

  1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
