Water

Standard

We fight,

Oppose,

Titling winners or losers

When we are

All merely water,

Whether raindrop or river,

Flowing to

The same ocean.

Bath

Standard

Hotel.

I draw a hot bath, pouring generous amounts of bubble bath under the faucet.

I immerse myself slowly as the temperature of the water is a bit too hot.

White tub, white shower curtains,

White noise fan.

Speckled walls.

Sleepy eyelids closing.

I want to stay here and dream.

The water is getting chilly

And the faucet is dripping ice cold drops on my toes,

Reminding me this is no fairytale.

The fan is singing to me

And no one is asking me questions now.

I will stay just a little longer.

Linger just a little longer.

Linger just a little longer

As tears trickle

Down my skin eventually mixing with the bath water.

I will merely imagine

I am adrift in the ocean.

True

Standard

I walked on

And

I watched the

Eagles fly.

I hear the whoosh of the air

On their wings as they glide overhead.

The higher they go

The stronger my heartbeat.

And I heard the brush rustle

Nearby,

Turning just in time

To see 3 deer leaping into my path.

Alert and tentative.

For a moment I expect to see a predator on their heels.

But no.

And we gaze into each others eyes for what seems like time indefinite .

And i feel that whole lifetime of anxiety leave my bones.

Stillness fills my cells.

My mind clears and my heart swells.

Peace. I am as i am meant to be.

I find myself by the river where I immerse myself in nature’s song.

I become the water and the stones who mean

Each other no harm.

They merely add to the symphony.

As do I;

I know.

This is true.

All Around

Standard

I sense you but I know

Not

From which direction.

All around me it seems.
Waste no time in learning your lessons this journey

Through.

You promised you would find me

Once again

In

This life.

Where are you now?
I run  knowing I must

Go to the river

Most hastily.
There i submerge myself completely

Knowing that

Someday the same water that touches

Me

Will in someway

Caress you.
On it goes,

And on and on.

Whether raindrop, river or ocean

It makes its way to you;

As will my heart.
