one word slough: respond

this will only take
a moment:
of your time, my time
of nevertime: listen
to the song unfold
listen to the river
through your chest
the rest of
the journey
cascading down
the nevertime you

I think this is my favorite piece ever. listening to a song takes more than a moment but when it works it's magic, it's outside of time.

I agree. This one is magnificent!. I love the fluid rhythms of the river flowing through and the sassy comebacks of the responses, and the general jivviness of the entire work. It gives aural and visual images, and it resonates in the heart! In reading it, the pilgrim makes great progress along the pathways in and out of time!

The river theme’s rising looks like. Your Pearl River and this “listen to the river run…,” and my Clyde River Hardware. Maybe you got me going down the river or maybe river vibes are just plain in the air these days. Either way, I’m liking it, feeling your nevertime that I might could make my own.

your word 'nevertime' took me out of time and into rhythm and flow.

Dee: I've certainly been there, amiga.

Teresa: I was shooting for something more on the uplift, something more in the heart; glad you caught the pilgrim way.

DOM: The theme is certainly rising; would like for the water to do so as well. Was off in Mississippi and driving through Louisiana this past weekend - lord, the green was flooding the eyeballs. We drove through a fifteen minute shower that was fifteen times the amount of rain this desert has had all year. You know how obsessed with water I am, anyway.

Rock on, Miz Lee.
