riverside snow white

By Star

A work inspired by Star

dear river lily,

stay floating 
in the clearest of 
waters and let the wind 
push it's way through.

it's god's breath cooling you 
off on the hottest of days. 

i'm sure you'll stand 
you roots in the deepest 
parts of the river and i'm 
sure you'll hold to
the steadiest of boulders. 

you know, the fish 
are envious of you.
i heard them whisper 
while you were 

they said that they're 
jealous because you can
feel the heat of the sun 
on your face. and how you can 
breathe in your surroundings. 

they also said that 
you're the prettiest thing 
they laid their eyes on.

the riverside snow white 
they called you. 

i know you'll 
grow into a tiger lily 
one day. 

the river told me 
that that's what 
he's scared about the most.
