stream of life

January 28, 2010

Sitting on the shore
The bank of the stream of life
A leaf floated by
And another
And yet another

The colors of the trees
Falling in loveliness
Circle of forever life
And another

Each leaf was a thought
She watched drift toward her
And drift away
This wide part
Of life's stream

Gently focused
On the full breadth
Of her perspective
With each breath in
Each breath out

Sitting on the shore
Her thoughts in clear view
Along with the flow of life
She stood
And slowly walked in
