Good Medicine - NaPoWriMo


Good Medicine
Submerged (and light) up past my heart
In a swirling, whirling, fractal current 
Of a shiny green river rolling cold and clean 
Down from the mountains and away
Far away.
But here in this place, in this space
--Under mountain skyline and dome of blue heavens--
First splicing, weaving, linking
With the heat from deep within
My Mother (Earth)
Where her nectar rises to meet me
To envelop and hold me
Like any good Mother.
Soothing my soul with good medicine.
Note:  This is an installment of my endeavor to write a Poem-A-Day in honor of April being National Poetry Month.  If you want to take part in the annual celebration of all thing poetry consider signing up to receive a poem each day in your email courtesy of the Academy of American Poets.  Or take participate in Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day on April 27th.  There are also loads of Poem-a-Day challenges on the local and international level to inspire creativity and hone the art of poetry writing.
