Downstream


The current continues to flow

regardless if it’s opposed.

Its progress vaguely slowed,

while divine nature is shown.

~

Why swim against the stream

or try to bend the wind,

visualize the unseen

or lament what has been?

~

Give legs to present pace!

Cast shadows in the light!

Accept your present place

and cease the senseless fight!

~

For now is reality

and while yesterday’s a dream,

tomorrow has yet to be

yet we loiter in between.

~

Whispers slip between fingers

so sing with a faithful voice.

Grasp, not letting life linger

lost in a lack of choice.

  2. Great imagery. “try to bend the wind” is great use of words. Thanks for sharing.
