NPD Poem of the Day – Flow, by Alison Williams

Kodyak Tisch

A poem from Alison Williams:




my world is fluid

in a constant

state of flux


I am an ocean

who once spoke

to the dry land


I told him how much

I admired his



he answered me

with rockfalls, landslides

lava fields


he showed me

all the pain there is

in rigidness


when change comes

then the hardness somehow

has to break


rending himself apart

and shedding

tears of fire


he gave me

just a glimpse

into his molten core
