Water Heal My Soul – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

My words were inspired by this nourishing song, The River,

written and performed by Coco Love Alcorn. Please give it a listen.

river's spirit sings
rhythm without age
it knows flow
where to go
it helps me trust the way

with eyes closed, receiving
I open to the waterway
joining streamlets, runnels, rivulets
rushing away

Mother Earth's teaching
receding or overflow 
returning is
river's way to go

  1. Your verse is stimulating – and thank you for the link to Cocoa Love Alcorn – I immediately recognized her image and voice – paid more attention to her lyrics this time ’round. Nice pairing with your poem.

    1. Jazz,
      Thanks for reading and letting me know you listened to the song. This song has been a lifesaver for me the past two days. I close my eyes and let it take me to the river.
      I hope you are well. Take care.

      1. Ali, I am well! Walked 1.5 mile yesterday (with rollator) – hip healing nicely post Feb 2 surgery. We’re packing up now to go camping (in our Airstream, easy camping!) braced for chill temperatures but nevertheless I will be OUT OF THIS HOUSE for a week – overdue!
