poem-the river’s bride March 27, 2016

Oh, her longings are loud

and she seizes opportunities,

reads the mysteries and leaps.

.

Oh, her caution curls her

into weeping domesticity,

because she never neglects responsibilities.

.

Oh, love leaps from the river

like a dolphin and tangles in

fishermen’s nets

and bridal veils.

.

.

A little homage to the theatrical presentation of the Brazilian folk tale The River Bride by Marisela Treviño Orta, enjoying its world premier at Oregon Shakespeare Festival at the moment (2016 season).  We thoroughly enjoyed the complex tale with its stunning set and lighting!

I am feeling very blessed at the moment. This evening, there are 794,236 Kindle ebook titles listed on Amazon, and on Grace Awakening‘s second day of sales, it is rated #39,234.   I’m trying to figure out the math.  Am I right?  Is that Top 5%?  Can it be possible?

I am beyond thankful for the people who are supporting this great adventure and buying a copy!

Thank you!
