River Thoughts

Rushing River

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.

    Simply exquisite.One of my first thoughts was,is there a picture or painting to go alongside it? [ Editorial Footnote:-Should you feel that it is desirable;if you have a word with our peerless Tech/Admin.colleagues it is possible to upload accompanying pics.but they need to explain how it is best done]

      Hi Louis, funny you should mention that because I am feeling the urge to paint, to express more of myself. And I want to one day publish my poetry with the pictures I have in my mind. Thanks for saying that. I really appreciate that you liked it. It is my soul talking….and you are hearing it!

      Warm Regards,
