Voices – Blackout Poem

VOICES (c) jk 2016

VOICES
by jennifer kiley

listen
listen to the rushing river
the voice
the parable
of the moving water
rich in secrets
floating
on the reflecting surface
blue of the sky
with a thousand eyes

who would understand
its secrets?

of all secrets
of the river
one ran incessantly
it was always
at all times the same
and yet
new in every moment

grasp understand
understood grasped
not

only felt
stirring
divine voices
