unburdening

Much to our surprise
the floodwaters didn’t burst forth
there was no great clearing
of the skies above
nor of the muddy waters below

Just the two of us
on the same side
looking back across
the unsteady bridge

Our conscience virtually restored
what we really jettisoned in the unburdening
as we’d crossed
dawned in spite
of the setting sun
