Riverwalk

Posted by

Sol Luckman

I have seen two Crows
Locked and spinning
A tempest in a tempest
Across the windswept sage
Up over the Cañón rim

I have met the Otter Woman
By the riverside and
Felt the gift of her watery Medicine
Heal the worry inside

As for my feminine side
Downstream the Beavers are no joke
Just in the nick of time
As May approaches
They dam a swimming hole
For me and mine

My son will think it the Brandywine
I do not have the inclination
Or the heart
To contradict him

Not being myself so motivated
I thank the Beavers for the industriousness
That flows riverlike
Through the floodgates of
Their impressive buck teeth
Shaping gnarled driftwood and brush

Art Prints

The Rio flows from a wormhole
They say
The Indians call Blue Lake
Cascading down through the adobe Pueblo
Into what is known as the Riffles

From time to time
Following the water’s leaping edge
I commune with a Blue Heron
Seeming to wait for me
Perched high and hieroglyphically
On the sculpted lava rocks

I wonder if the Heron comes from Tula
If he flew up out of Blue Lake
A stargate bird
Bringing messages of hope
From a world beyond
A better one, where we all are headed

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Alter Ego

Sol Luckman is a pioneering painter whose work has been featured on mainstream book covers, the fast-paced trading game BAZAAR, and at least one tattoo on a female leg last sighted in Australia. He’s also an acclaimed author whose books include the international bestselling CONSCIOUS HEALING, which you can read free online, and its popular sequel, POTENTIATE YOUR DNA, available in English and Spanish. Sol’s visionary novel SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, the coming-of-age tale of one extraordinary boy’s awakening to the world-changing reality of his dreams, won the 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction. Building on this deep dive into lucid dreaming, parallel universes and Hindu mysticism, Sol’s new novel, CALI THE DESTROYER, is a page-turner of a sci-fi tale set in an Orwellian future seeded in the dystopian present that radically rewrites Gnosticism as well as the origins of the earth and humanity. On the lighter side, Sol’s popular book of satire, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU, received the 2017 National Indie Excellence Award for Humor.
