Down by the river

Down by the river

Counting stones

Down by the river

Each pebble

A symbol

Of weight that creased the footstep

When feet were nimble

 

Walking straight

Aloft the waters

Heaven’s pull

Contrasting

Gravity everlasting

Maintaining balance

 

Water flows

Endless free motion

No cushion

Commotion

A state of being alive

In expectation

We bear ills

Of every nation

Our hearts fenced

Our minds tight

Shutters barely let in light

Shadows our pittance

 

There are trees

That grow in the air

When I look

They are there

My mind their only manure

The sky’s tears their food

 

The world twirls

Dark merry-go-round

Yet I dream

Yes I dream

Images that join stream

Down by the river
