so… let us begin…

the river runs
north and south,
feeling the drift
of the current begin,
letting go
of the trembling within

for now…

discovering
more on the banks,
eddies sharply tasked
with creating stability,
loose leaves raining down,
cascading,
for deliriums sake

a break…

not far away,
stowed, and a little
out of control
wanting to resign,
as the love
of my life
passes by

walking
along the shore,
greeting the love,
missed by a kiss,
forevermore, remiss

the light…

cascades
through the trees,
dancing, and
entrancing,
so majestically
touching
the being withdrawn
from within, so…

let us begin…

Haiku #13

fast flowing river,
salmon swim upstream as one,
time of struggle, home.

The River

Photo by John Salvino on Unsplash

The river flows
Just as the wind blows
And the streams
In our veins grow

With life

A beautiful and tranquil
Existence
Of a long, and
Adored magnificence

Bending to the right
A mighty flight
Of fancy

Even prancy with delight

A memory of times
Gone by, yet
Filled with light

Luminous

And sparkling
As the sun shines
And the water dances
For the heavens, and is

Now beckoned

To the left
Never bereft
Only filled with
Sweet and blessed

Presence

Of Mind
Which is sublime
Each and every

Moment at a time

Breathe in deep, then
My friend, and
Take each
And every moment in

As their magnificence
Is a mirror
Of your very existence
