Rivers of Life

Still runs the river
O, so tranquilly
flowing in three seasons
through a lazy tangle
of overhanging trees
which stand as centurion guards
to further shade your mysteries.

Drifting along
there’s a song in your heart
which I too, can feel
as you reveal your moods.

Lazy flowing waters
I love to watch as music
fills my heart from your
un-conducted play.

Ripples sing your song
nature’s perfect symphony
flowing, ever flowing
on your journey to the sea.

Today you struck a perfect cord
and I shared your harmony.

I used to live in the house from where I snapped this picture. It is about 15 to 20 feet back from overlooking that river. It is beautiful and flows endlessly, until winter freezes it’s surface and then the ice becomes so many inches deep. But, even so, as it goes out to the sea, it still flows beneath all the ice.
