Life Is Like A River

we give away like the way a river flows
day to day

we may start with the petals of the flowers
we let them fall one by one

to the flow of the river
then we begin again with the leaves and then

the twigs and the branches and then if we have
nothing more to give we give away the tree itself

to the flow of the river
we look at ourselves we give every part of us

piece by piece to the flow of the great river
our properties our honor our clothes and when all these

are given away we start to give back our hands, our feet
we look at every pocket of our senses and when everything

is given away we shall now give the last that we have to the flow
of this great river of life

we let flow our soul. we have given everything
sometimes we ask that we stay for a while, but this cannot be

the law of the great river of life is clear, we give everything away
slowly, willingly, until all the pain of giving is gone away

Life

Life is like a river, it flows on,
Halting at precious moments, it goes on.
Meandering from beginning to end,
And here and there you see a bend.
Passing lush meadows and bountiful woods,
Which you may not notice though you should.
The beautiful trees swayed by the wind,
The azure sky above the rivers brink,
The golden sunlight making the waters gleam,
The countryside crisscrossed by numerous streams.
Yet sometimes the river gets stormy and wild,
And rocks you like a cradle rocks a child.
Now and then it changes coarse,
And takes you along with its currents force.
At times when the river is tidal and rough,
Going against the flow may be tough.
So flow with the river, wherever it takes you.
Overcome the storms, though there are few.
And when the river is smooth and mild,
Enjoy the experience till the end of the ride.

Dams On The Cuyahoga

Just west
of the Lake,
meanders
the burning river.

The river
in my dreams.

The river on fire.

The river
that oozes

rather than flows.

The river
in which
a person
does not drown

but decays.

And there
the river sits,

waiting for me
to come back home.

The River

My life, is a river,
In places it’s majestic and beautiful,
Like the glitter of the sun,
On its calm cool waves.

My life, is a river,
In places it’s dark and deceiving,
Hiding the rocks and hard places,
That lurks below.

My life, is a river,
Always looking for that,
Fast safe rapid, to glide down and not worry.

My life, is a river,
Some day’s you’ll capsize,
And fall to the depths below,
Only to rise again cold and worried.

My life, is a river,
Always twisting and turning,
Away from the rock barren shores,
Or from the sharp bends in the path.

Everything moves so fast on the river,
I’m always unsure where the next turn will take me,
Be it home or even further away, from where I want to be.
