It was great to collaborate again with awesome artist Jolie Buchanan! In this collaboration, which we title “Bottom of a Waterway,” Jolie’s artwork pairs with my poem below it. I wanted to reblog it here so you could all see it too! I hope you enjoy the project; we had a lot of fun creating it!
Sending smiles for your new week ahead!
Excited to have back again the wonderful word-smither Christy Birmingham to Spaces to Create!
Bottom of a Waterway
Christy Birmingham and Jolie Buchanan
My mind goes to the river,
Only seconds before my toes follow, and
My thoughts rush over debris that sits at the
Bottom of a waterway full of tears.
My flesh is eaten by the liquid smoothness of
A river and of a light, with a newfound joy that
Resonates within my bones.
As I reach forward with my hands, I scoop up
The weeds that peak through the water,
The softness of my palms meeting them for
A thoughtful exchange of what to enjoy tomorrow.
Indeed, there is more to be had.
And, in turn, through our meeting of
Weeds, water and whimsy,
I tell myself that it is okay to start at the bottom
