Chinook Salmon Spirit – Sandy River, Oregon

Late Spring I Drove To The Sandy River

The Big Rocky Spot –

Across From OxBow Park –

River is Deep Here –

On My Left, Is Far

Up This River As

It Moves

North, Down Stream –

On A Knee I

Put My

Hand In The Sparkly Water

Stroked The River…

– Then Sat Back

– On That Rock

Pondered My God And I

Me And His

Sandy River

Pondered God And The Flow Of Water

Called Here…

The Sandy River. Water. In Oregon. Just Then –

Up On The Road, I Heard A Car… Doors…

Drunken Teenagers Yelling

Arriving, I Heard…

But Could Not See Them.

A Young Shout –

Brown Beer Bottle, Tossed –

It Passed, Up Above

Past My Shoulder, Landed

SPLASH In The Middle Of

God’s River It Sank There

Was A Brief Quiet

Then

Where The Bottle Sank

A Large Bright

Silver Chinook Salmon Fish

Exploded Out Of The Waters

SPLASH THEN

With A Fishtail Dance

On Top

Of That

Sandy River, Oregon. Water

The Chinook Salmon Spirit Of God

DANCING STOOD Then

Dove. Away
