Loch, A Love Letter To Water

Lacuna Loft’s Journaling program sends a journal prompt directly to your inbox.  Participants are encouraged to write for a specific amount of time (usually between 7-12 minutes) and are always invited to submit their writing for publication here.  This piece was written by Tori T. in response to the prompt: Write a love letter to water.

I’ve been waiting to meet you wildness;

I sought you,

On long and stormy nights.

I clung to your rocky shores,

Waiting for your pull to drag me under.

But instead your landscape drove me,

To a land of contradictions.

One of rugged mountains,

gouged out canyons,

covered in the softest grass and freshest air.

A swirl of mist fog,

And icy dredges.

Darkest waters,

Greenest pastures,

Pillows of heather,

Giant granite boulders standing tall.

Amongst these rivals,

I felt claimed by all.
