Flowing River, Comforted Land

December 15, 2007

Water flows through the river of the valley
Twisting and bending and following her form
It knows no other way to exist
Carves her as it flows without end

Deepening of the ancient landscape
Unfamiliar and old and new and changing
Constantly moving toward an unseen place
Nature of existence, dance of water and land

Approaching the great sea, landscape changes
Smoother and wider and calmer, peaceful flow
River and land, land and river, calm bay, warm beach
All is well as the sun draws the water from the earth

Rains will come again, washing mountains, valley, sea
Be at peace in the perfect knowledge of the great circle
All is precisely as it is supposed to be in this moment
For the waters and the dirt and the rivers and the land
