River rushing fast and furious
Emotion from a frightened world
Dark pools swirl the spurious
Corners cut and stones hurled.
Another fall of rain and then
I wonder where life will flow
when the bank can no longer bare
the weight of worries, where to go?
Birds fly south and autumn leaves
wave in the wind of change
about to fall into swelling water
Spinning yellow from the inside out.
Questions twist together undefined
Will the trees see another year?
Will we pass the test of time
And overcome the taste of fear?
River rushing out to sea
To the depths of mysterious blue
Tell me if there is a reason
For feeling fury as I do.
A splash, then a wave rolls by
With power pressing indiscrete
Whirling water, wash the world
Sparkling drops make sour sweet.
