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.
