Day 25 – Dear Jim

There are just a few remaining days in our 28 Days of Unreason. Songs of Unreason has provided us with a number of quotes about water; this one triggered a response directed at our author, hence my title for today, Dear Jim.  Here is the line from Harrsion for today and my poem.

“The river can’t heal everything”  ~ Jim Harrison

Dear Jim,
For seven eternities we have been water, moving water, searching for healing from these unclaimed sins and now you tell us.

I look to the towering Norfolk Pine

but she, too, is silent

and incapable.

  1. OK, that’s amazing. And we were both hovering over water, redemption and healing, lol! I like that you take on Jim directly. I feel like that a lot. The ending was beautiful and just hints at its truth.

    1. Thank you! After all that water and then this quote, I just wanted to tell him to F off! lol. As to the redemption theme, did you read the completion of Jeren’s poem yesterday?
