Watching and listening to the river
Passing over a small falls
I fall in rhythm with the flow
Soothing, calming, inspiring reflection
It seems to be a universal human response- we look for glimpses of water, we value the moments we spend gazing at moving water.
Easy to appreciate its beauty,
Metaphors and similes swirl easily from the current.
The river is a guide, leading me
Its flow welcomes me into meditation
Light reflects on the surface, inspiring clarity
Its depths offer a cool retreat into memory
The river’s flow changes here,
To the west, slow, gentle, meandering, but persistent
To rushing, aggressive, negotiating over and through rocks
Obstacles or opportunities
