At the mouth of Big Fork
We dealt with your fear of water
My farm girl doesn't swim like her river man
A two person kayak on a summers day
Quiet was the lake at the mouth of the river
Slow were our strokes as we went
You white knuckled your paddle so tight
As the day went your grip loosened
Your hair always up you let down
The calm water moved into you
Your life on the prairie had none of this
It was all dust and noise and dirt
The career you forged in the city was even louder
In one day I saw waters magic take hold
A stop along a secluded beach to baptize you with a swim
Your face finally without make up softened and smiled
Years of tension flowed down the river
Floating you took in that Montana big sky
Not much was spoken that day
You said it best looking up at the sky
" A girl can breathe out here....."
Big Fork Montana
