reaching out

the leaves whispered urgently
as the wind came visiting
with news about you and
a message just for me.

across the distance you reached out
and touched me and smiled
as i started and looked around
wondering if you could see me.

the river gurgled past
and carried my thoughts
across the eddies and currents
and wound its way to you.

and as you drank deeply
of the cool water in your cupped palms
you could hear my response
echoing within the deepest part of you.
