a long braided stream
life etches dreams and losses
deep into my bones

Like well worn hieroglyphs, you have to find the Rosetta bone to tell which is which. Love the thought of a "braided stream"!!

Braids and bones and streams and dreams and losses... you sure pack a lot in a few simple lines. A haiku of the life journey...

Am really enjoying your Salmon River photos and poetry. I floated that river a couple of summers ago and it is still in my heart.

Polona and rdl, I'm glad you both enjoyed this.

Pat, the "Rosetta bone" made me laugh, thanks.

Zhoen, ooooh.

Brenda, there is so much to pack in one can't even begin to do justice. Sometimes simpler is easier that way! Thank you.

Corey, everyone needs a balm for the soul, I guess.

Floots, they're different, but related.

Michelle, it's one of the reasons I'm drawn to the haiku form, I guess. The challenge of trying to pack a universe into a few lines.

Mermaid, we are not that far from the land.

Bitterroot, thanks for stopping by. It's a memorable place, as you know.
