the legend

the legend

A Poem by Lydia Shutter



photo by emily soto






an unnamed river
flows deep within me

uncharted waters
rapidly cascading
as they hum their siren song

in ambient cyclicity
you plant seeds of desire
on its banks

fluently translating my fantasies
into passionate facts
while writing the legend
of a river

that now sweetly
sings your name

Oh wow...what an image you have conjured up here. Unnamed flowing rivers and seeds of desires that sing somebody's name. This is almost mystical in its beauty...it's too much to take in. Really, really special poem here. Your poetic charms just keep getting deeper, my friend.

I like your style of abstract metaphorical crunchy verbiage, its a poem that rolls off the tongue nicely

Thank you, Jason.
Passion and rivers have much in common. Flow, winding twists and turns along the way, and always they run their course no matter what.
