What are our thoughts? How do they begin, and where do they go? In what ways can we describe them? In this poem by Richard Lewis, illustrated by Kathy Creutzburg, poet and artist have come together to bring a new and lyrical perspective on the origin of our thoughts and their relation to the life and phenomena of the natural world. Originally composed for an arts and education residency of The Touchstone Center, "We Are Rivers" is a quiet and richly textured journey, evoking the fluid patterns and movements of the nature we evolve from--and continually express.
