Moody Sentinels

Three sentinels

Stand determined.

Moody and muddy

Rooted

They brace against

The eddies

And the flow

Of oars and flotsam,

Ever mobile,

Passing by.

In Motion

And the water rushed

From the top

Of the mountain

To the valley below,

Urged by the

Perpetual motion

Of life in

Quenching flow.

Bank On Peace

If nothing else

You can bank

On some peace

Come day’s end.

On a breath

By the water

When a ripple

Extends.

On a sigh

Of the chest

Born of awe

Seeped with ease.

You can count

On some peace

Come day’s end.

Me, too, please.

Parched No More

Rare drops join

To overflow

Silt and mud

On the go

Desert lands

Scoured so

A stream bed

Parched no more.

 

For the Wits End photo challenge: Moving water

Dedicated to the potential for life that desert rains bring … and to the young souls who were lost in a flash flood earlier this year.

 

Meandering

When life turns back onto itself

When flow seems stalled

Or slogs to mud

Hope still remains

A promise curled in gathered clouds

For though they hide the current sun

They still meander

Toward a future

Of fertile streams

To guard.

The Paths of Time

In passing we will know

The paths of time

The way to grow:

The to and fro

The high

The low

The good

The woe

The ebb

The flow.

Take a break from the city

From the din

From the crowds.

Walk yourself into quiet

Find a park

Riverside.

Turn the clamor to low

Let your breath

Ebb and flow.
