The river calms my mind and heart. When
the outside world gets rather crazy
or my everyday world a little over
whelming. I find myself heading
for the river.
The past few weeks it has been full of
rain and mud. It is almost a chestnut
brown in places. It is running fast
and dangerous. It is impossible to see
the rocks and boulders that lie beneath
There are days my thoughts and feelings
run like the river. Fast and quick.
Flowing as if they will never stop.
Yet,as I watch the water everything
that was bothering me flows away,
my focus comes back and a part of
me begins to sing.
