Life Waters


As the greatest river

Finds its way to the sea

Nature the life giver

And nowhere else to be



Unstoppable the go

Indominable force

It keeps a steady flow

When change besets its course



No earth or rock can keep

This rain-fed splashing knife

From meeting with the deep

The birthplace of its life



So flexible and strong

As we should try to be

Journey however long

To our own salty sea

    A worthwhile challenge, or endeavour, to journey on, cutting like a knife, flowing like water, to our own deep and salty sea. Brilliant and excellent! Lovely words creating lovely images. Wonderful work my friend! Take good care and all the best!

    Your words fall flow beautifully off the tongue just like the the small bodies of water finding the ocean. What a visual. I really appreciate how you talk about the strength of the water because people drown every year because they don’t realize what a force water really can be. Lovely poem Brad.

    Hope you day is filled with much love, that you stay safe and careful. Sending love via sailboat in the sky full of beautiful mermaids. Don’t keep them out to late and don’t forget you will have to find some of that water to take them for a swim. Love ya Jonikins 🤗💕❤️🧜‍♀️🧜‍♀️

    as you so beautifully say, life is all about the journey, not the destination…

    Your poem made me think of an old memory, Brad. My family and I visited Itasca State Park in Minnesota when I was a kid. That’s the location of the Mississipi River Headwaters. It’s mindblowing that this eighteen-foot wide, knee-deep river could become such a powerful river.
