        I Dreamed I Was A River
                                                     by Ralph Fletcher


        I dreamed I was a river,
        swift-running and dangerous,
        or slow-lazing and silted,
        my toes a thousand tributaries
        trickling from mountain snows,
        my belly fixed but ever-changing,
        stretching across continents,
        mouth wide open to the sea

        I dreamed I was a drop of sweat
        on a quarterback’s determined brow

        I dreamed myself an iceberg,
        an enormous moveable mass,
        home to walrus, seal, Arctic tern,
        feared by dogsledders and warships,
        my huge underbelly never seen
        by the eye of the sun

        I dreamed I was a raindrop
        falling on a drought-scarred field

        I dreamed myself a water creature,
        my ancestors all ocean-born,
        my body three-quarters salt water,
        living on a rare water planet

        I dreamed I was a tear
        in a grown man’s eye

  3. 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: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
