Where The Ohio Weds The Mississippi-Missouri

Mate Love



Where The Ohio Weds The Mississippi-Missouri

Above works hard the tug boat
It churns and puffs and floats
and ruffles and foams the coats
of these two great saints.

Below the longawaited mating
of two giants..
profoundly peaceful
only here and there
eddies of ecstasy
betray the great confluence
as branch braids into trunk.

Mississippi-Missouri had surrendered to
his desire for a wife..
knowing not that the Ohio
was waiting for
in the corridors of time..

not fireworks but waterweaving
in this most sacred silence
