river haiku by arline christ.

in may, with weather finally warming up more kindly, at least by a pinch or two in terms of degree-thinking, my traveling poetry class ventured to the schuylkill river for the first time in 2017. and we were very ecstatic to be there, especially given how we were stuck inside all winter.

we enjoyed our beloved hideaway spot, the usual, in pottstown near the west campus of montgomery county community college.

arline christ, who over the past decade has painted several animals on the carousel at pottstown which debuted this winter, stringed some river haiku, which i'm letting extend across the page a bit broadly here so they can be best appreciated in extended form, joining together, although written separately, and moving like water downstream.
