Alluvial Deposits

A moment
when the earth
around the bend
of the sun,
gold melts into me;
a river in the night.



How A Mountain Came To Be

In the beginning,
forces pull me in a continental drift to a convergent boundary,

creating earthquakes and volcanoes as I journey through.
Growing and dying at once, I become both old and new.

My heart burns from the lava in an unfought fight,
created between the Ocean and Moon at night.

In the end,

I am the love the moon walks down to the stream and valley floors,
the Ocean, finally being touched like it’s never been touched before.
