thirst quencher

give me a drink
of your water
from a well
that is unfit for me
give me a drink
of your water
that man’s
not your husband
i see
give me a drink
of your water
and I will
set you free
give me a drink
of your water
come live forever
in me
Peace ~ Rene

  1. This one confused me a bit. The part about "that man's not your husband" threw me off. I thought I was getting better at interpreting your work, but I'm lost here. Care to explain or would you rather be mysterious? Cheers,SLC

  2. This is beautiful. For some reason, I thought right away of the woman at the well. Your poetry is very intriguing.Thought you might like to know that I have a visitor on my blog, today, who will be sharing her grampa's true-life adventures as a Rider on one of the Orphan Trains! There's room for everyone to gather in close and get to know Donna, while enjoying her wonderful story-telling talents. I look forward to seeing you there. Yaya Yaya's Changing World

  3. Rene, Rene, Rene. I've been so negligent in keeping up with blogs, etc. So what a nice treat to come to this one. And I was so proud of myself… oh, wait, pride cometh before the fall. Anyway, I knew what you were writing about and it's lovely! A great story, and one that's so important to remember. Hooray for the spring countdown!! Peace, hugs. ~ Ginny

  4. Made me think of that post I did a while ago about the woman in a village in India who was ostracized by the entire village because she touched the arm of an outsider at the well….
