Essence

As you come to the shore
my outstretched fingers
draw you near to
This river unknown

Onward I flow
between your legs
prodding ahead
towards
that
future unknown

I approach The River
both naked and shy
pulled I am into
That river unknown

In its purity absolved am I
to surrender myself to
A river unknown

Together we drift
from our own soledad
Inseparable we pass
One River Now Known.

Through vineyards and valleys
through labyrinth and lair
through essence and act
One River Now Known
