Bathe – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

dVerse Poets – Poetics – Water, Water Everywhere

Taken in 2018 at the end of winter, the upper section of the Margaret River as it crosses a road.

 

Bathe

She purifies
as she runs down my body
in rivulets unprescribed
by orthodoxy
unconfined by any
but her own ancient
ways of caress
that runs deeply
through my
dry soul.

  9. This is deep, Paul. It could be physical, metaphysical, sensual, I guess no single interpretation is wrong or right.
