Rivers Within

The river runs rapidly towards its eternal home

No rock or boulder can interrupt its steady flow

Rushing, bubbling, and peace-bringing cacophony

The joy, rapture, music of this oft-repeated show


There lies beneath this energy rush, a world so full

Life that teams and streams along with its cleansing host

Fish, tadpoles, and frogs abound and clearly depend

Nurturing mother that our earth and bodies need most


Receive its healing and strength as it empowers

Let its rivulets wipe away the crustiness of the hate

Wear away the rock-hard contention, conflict, strife

For we are the river, the flow and we are the strait.

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.
