Life's River - Nov. 22, 2010



Life's River

Until the sea waves wash into the dead of night
Gathering enough jewels to wear
My life will touch upon the shores of light
And my thoughts will always be there

My treasures whirl around the earth as I speak
Clouds rise into the hours beyond
Life's river flows slowly yet is never weak
Eliciting my emotions to respond

Far and fast reaching is the hand of nature's power
I can hear her calling in the wind
My eyes seek to see better in every hour
Releasing dust that made them blind

I see no scarlet time when life could be so cruel
Yet few now remember our sea
But I still watch her gathering all her jewels
To wear upon her waves for you and me

Idle hours are gracious into the dead of night
When sea waves rush upon the shore
As jewels fall from heaven replenishing my light
Flowing life's river into me once more

this is so true about life's river - a cycle or rather a "circle of life"

The thought in my mind as I sit down to write
Is how many phases occur in each life
I'm now thirty nine, on the verge of a change
Because many frustrations mustn't recur again
Three phases for me, looking back on my life
Seven years in each phase come clearly to light
No boredom for me in those thirty years
One life to me given, must be lived in good cheer
Circumstances now point me in various ways
Calmly and slowly, a pattern forming a phase
Hopefully peaceful, in exchange for exclusions
Integrity foremost, with no room for delusions ...
