River's Journey

River’s Journey

She flowed from up there
Rising up and falling down~~~
Over stones and rocks
Excitement carrying her along….

Down and down she came
Carrying water in her bosom
Quenching the thirst
Of all coming her way

Little seeds flourished
Little plants grew
Little animals survived
Little fish swam along

Life was renewed~
All over the plain
Birds came from far and wide
To partake in its bounty

And I waited!!!!!!!!
My whole water body
Tensed in expectation
Awaiting her arrival

And there she was
Gorgeous as the sky above
Rushing towards me
Excitement in the air

I opened my bosom
In she came……
Deep, deep went she
Becoming one with me

And there she rests
After a long journey
Closing her eyes
To a life ,of peace.
