Life is like a river

Life is like a river
The current always flows
The further down stream you get
The faster it seems to flow

Yet at times
On a gentle bend
It appears to slow
Almost stand still

Then when you look back
The past seems so distant
Children grow, too quickly
Bodies age & get creaky

Life is but a river
The current waits for no one
Yet as impatient as the river is
It’s journey is one of beauty

Mist Rises

Rain swollen river

Threatens to breach the banks

Mist rises

From newly aggressive rapids

That seek attention

With their ominous roar

If you dared to enter

They would consume you

Feed you to the rocks

All the while

The trees watch on

Unmoved by the insolence of the water

Simply enjoying the extra nutrients

Through all the seeming chaos

Harmony is clear

When you look at the whole

The Waterfall

There is a river that flows from the throne

A river that gives life

Making valleys, forging paths

It comes to a cliff and drops

 

A beautiful waterfall beyond imagination

I approach the waterfall slowly

As I cup my hands the water fills them

More calmly that the flow should allow

 

I take my full hands and splash my face

The water flows over my head and runs down my back

I am refreshed, I am renewed

I feel like I can face another day

 

In that very moment my eyes open wider

I look around and notice that I walked through

The pool created by the river to reach the waterfall

I was wading in and surrounded by that which I journeyed to reach

 

Once again I simply smile and acknowledge

My limitations and His limitlessness
