Several months ago at atrying time in my life I spent a few weeks with a fellow New Orleanian who survived Katrina. She took me to the ENU Rover in Durham,NC where shoe often went when needing to be still while she put her life back together. This poem came from that.

Going To the River

By Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney ©08


When I am in a way where words refuse to suffice...


Or the tides cannot soothe my ears with a melodic rhythm


And the gentle rustle of the sycamore tree sounds more like Beethoven's Fifth


Or cleansing raindrops feels more like crashing boulders surrounding my soul.


And the 12th of Never seems ever, ever more then one should bear.


Or the blossom that fell echoed so loud that even Nat's own velvet voice failed to quiet...


Relief seems to far away as the Serengetti is for me to stroll over


And the hope that the Middle Passage was a cruel, cruel joke.

That was not absolutely not funny.


I have to seek a place to replenish myself to go on another day.


So for me...


I am going to the river...

To sit & just be.
