“Aside – Sonia Benskin Mesher
This feels simple but is deeper when I look inside … I love the ending … ‘half remembering / running water or amnesia’ – and I also like ‘float along lilied notions’. The streams of health and hills and how they freshen our motives.”

sonja benskin mesher

i cannot live through
stagnant water,
i need oxygene
to survive this life,

to swim in clear
utter glory,
natures sweetest potion,
float among lilied notions

and live readily.

rancid pools a bitter
marriage make,
yellow scum upriver,
comes down reminding
sleepless nights
and half remembering.

running water or amnesia?
