Down by the river

imageHe sat by the river bank
Black wavy hair
Brushing his shoulders
Eyes of deepest green
He was there
Sitting between the cat-tails
Arms wrapped around bended knees
Skin glistening in the afternoon sun

That’s where I last saw him
His stare skipping the rippled water
His smile the one I fell for
As I waved my arms and cried his name
He waited
There by the river
As my blood pooled against the bank

  1. Oh, how treacherous the heart is! You amaze me how quickly I get all wrapped into your words, Jen. Then, I wish to hear the “back story” of the attractive man in the tall grass and cat-tails! What made him do this?
    Love your beautiful way with intrigue and mischief!
