Sucking Air

Some of life’s experiences leave you feeling like a flopping fish sucking air in a dry river bed.

SUCKING AIR

By some dark power she
damned the stream,
made all the fishes flop
on their sides on the rocks,
sucking air, just
long enough.

Break the log jam.  Pray for rain.  Breathe deeply.  And swim.
