There are rumors of water.
And Time winds
down hidden hallways,
sips tea with feathered memories
and eats bagels with Imagination
who sees beyond what is
to what can be
in gaping holes and
medieval laundry baskets
and berry-colored bottles.
In time, Time whispers words and songs
that rise in some kind of prayer
like white moths
to meet this moment.
There is more to this moment–
And there are rumors of wine.
This week we conclude our discussion of and reflections on Rumors of Water: Thoughts on Creativity & Writing over at Tweetspeak Poetry.
Nice. Nice. Nice. Thank you.

Loved, loved, loved Rumors of Water. It doesn’t get put away. I keep it where I can read it. I pick a page number and start from there. I know that is a crazy thing to do but I always find inspiration. I read it straight through the first time. 🙂 There are rumors of wine here too—we live in a dry county 🙂
Not crazy at all, Dea! My copy is totally bent up and scribbled on–as are all L.L.’s books come to think of it. 😉

Eating bagels with Imagination. I should clear off the breakfast table to make room for that guest.
Lovely, Sandy. Glad to have had you along for this. 🙂
It’s been a great ride, my friend. I can’t wait for the next journey.

“And there are rumors of wine.” This is so lovely Sandy.
There’s this picture floating around Facebook–a water sign above shelves of wine. How perfect is that?

Me, too! Me, too! I love “And there are rumors of wine.” So introspective! Will probably mull that over all day! Love how your noggin works!
From water to wine. Have you read this book, Lynn?
I pulled that last line from L.L.’s last paragraphs. Well, really, this whole post was pulled from the last chapter. 🙂
