Water Hyacinth

July 23, 2013

For Thomas Graham, Rest in Peace

You have done your work

You are happy enough

To let your legs dangle

In the cool, dark water

With your face turned upwards

All shades of purple, of gentle,

Of meekness, which is akin to

Knowing how blessed life is

Between air and water

Between love and psalm

In family and in clemency

Drifting slowly in the deep

Somewhere attached.Image
