Take me

To the river

As the water flows o’er

Tranquility washes over me

The stones

“Your Challenge: 
Write a new poem that clarifies tranquility. Use a short form for this challenge: any form from 3 to 17 lines.”

Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Something else is in that brook speaking as the water flows to the river, I think. A joyous molecule, and maybe a fish or two, travel with the water while the speaker approaches and the stones wait. Very nice.

  2. Your poem does indeed clarify tranquility. And thank you for commenting on my poem as well. By the way I like the way you have the background photo on your blog. Very nice.

  3. the water refreshes, representing serenity. the stones in the brook represent permanence, constancy. the open verse reminds me of a favorite song by the talking heads – take me to the river…………..
