at the edge

Photographer Unknown; posted for Magpie Tales

cold rain pours,
melts in the river.
shall she join the others
who have gone before,
shall she.

a wet raven watches.
will his beak tell
the stories of a woman
at the edge?

in the water below, she
sees reflections of herself.
before succumbing
to the emptiness

of the waves, she
sees a glimmer, she
hears whispers, she

flies with the raven
to the land of dripping green.

    wow…haunting write…perhaps once beneath she will find what she was looking for or no longer feel its emptiness….

    It was not an act of will that led her there. She was drawn.

    I wonder what the glimmer was that drew her into the depths? One can’t help but see that she is on a precipice, on the edge, as you describe. Good poem!
