I Took the Challenge

I actually used a poetry challenge today from a Twitter follower. Yes, in a roundabout way, but floating makes me think of my most favorite place in the whole world, the Guadalupe.

My Favorite Place to Be

The river has a power like none other,
Some might say a healing or an invigorating power.
It restores.
The river forgives the sins of youth,
Those who use the river in fun and games.
It washes away.
When the river destroys,
No one can blame it for its character or personality.
It lives.
There are times on the river,
Your world stops spinning and your reality...
It suspends.

Heads up to me and whoever is keeping score...I will probably post the poems from the next three days on Monday. I do promise to write even though I won't be able to post.

  1. I love it! The river does wash away the bad and leave you walking away with only the good. I can't wait to be in it with Addie.
