  1. Ah yes, there is a lovely piece (piano) by André Gagnon of the St-Lawrence seaway flowing into the ocean…this lovely ku reminds me of this. I must find it.

  2. in river’s singing
    the lyrics never tell us
    why it yearns for salt

      Sometimes, I think, we have yearnings that we ourselves cannot explain—and if we tried, we would probably lose our bearings!

  3. Love the old ‘river chanting’ ~ lovely ~

  19. Areuse River ran next to the monastery where I lived and worked, with a side channel right through the monastery that flowed UNDER a chapel and then went underground. Now that I read your poem, I realize that there we had both the river and the sisters singing plainsong.
