The River Jordan

Standing at the waters dividing edge....

Watching the sparrows and dragonflies flying by

Spitting into its mirrored reflections amid these 

Shimmering thoughts of being as one; life ~

Walking down its banks and gazing into the sky


Sacred verse; flowing currents and swaying flowers

Jewelweeds, colourful turtles and curious mallards

Butterflies dancing afore fascinations bloom; purity ~

A chorus line its blessed light and unknown night and I

My own hands; before the altar carved years ago....

The precious name of “Christ, The Messiah.” 

Turning toward the north to pass, this sweeping sun ~

Spirit in hand; spitting into the waters of mirrored

Moments as One, with my Soul....

Searching beyound the currents flowing inside these eyes

Nature, life, tides and tides; time, standing at divisions edge


....“Again, At The River Jordan” ~
