Flow, Rivers. Flow


Down cascading mountain sides

Or through plains and lowlands stil

Rapidly o'er rocky shallows

Plunging to depths below

Whirlpools of foaming mists

Stagnant rivers still as death

Flow, rivers, flow

For that is life

Placid at times but with undercurrents wild

Rippling along at quiet pace

Or swirling rapidly in place

The flow is downward as we know

To lakes or ponds or marshes wild

Inexorably they flow

To Ocean or Dead Sea


Note: Analogous reflection on life.


Flow, Rivers, Flow(c)2006 Quentin Clingerman
