River Wind


Jude Aher

girl played
on a wooden stage
on the steps of chance
where the earth
as silence talks
of deeper nights
or tomorrows
and candle lights.
girl stayed
till the woman believed.

warm river wind
crossed evenings
where dusk colors
her eyes dream
in the rhyme of
her screams.
a woman
who dances no more
but for the pattern
so deep in her soul
still believes
in the girl
in the dream.

dares she fear
she fears
dares she dare
she dares
dares she care,
a river wind woman
and so dances
and so stands,
her river stance free.
