Confluence

confluence,  mid-15c., from L.L. confluentia, from L. confluentem (nom. confluens), prp. of confluere “to flow together,” from com- “together” + fluere “to flow.”

  1. a flowing together of two or more streams, rivers, or waterways.
  2. their place of junction.
  3. a coming together of people or things.

In this video, Steve and I captured a place where waters meet in words and moving image.

RIVER SONG

Listen, hear our language
Spelt in ripples on rocks,
Chalked in the swirl of current
And the eddies in our stream.

Look, see our soul shine,
Fleet in dappling shades
That bind the sun and clouds
With waterlight in motion.

Touch, feel our breath,
Where waters meet at last,
Released from yearning
In the deepest depths our joining.

Rejoice, for we are river,
Fed by raindrop,
Suckled by cloud,
Maker of ocean,
Carver of life.
