Silver Waves Upon The Shore

Pushed there for a thousand years
and will be for a thousand more,
pushed there by the gentle winds
the silver waves upon the shore.

Ancient trees who watched here daily
are now dark silhouettes 'round the rim,
as dusk settles in over the still lake
and a dragonfly takes a final skim.

As the sun dips below the surface
silver waters gain a hint of gold,
their riches flow around my feet
giving me memories to be told.

The sands of time sift down below
where life goes drifting by,
and laid there for a thousand years
and beneath them, so shall I.

And become like a silhouette
to watch all life drift by,
and reliving in every moment
never stopping to ask why.

Pushed there by flowing currents
and the wind's most gentle roar,
I fade away like the golden sun
glint silver waves upon the shore.

    Well - I can see you like to rhyme. I have a book called "The Ode Less Travelled" It tells you about forms. I also have taken courses in poetry at various places. At one time I wanted to be a lawyer or a basketball player. Instead I am a college assistant/writer/poet. Hope you have a good time with your new friend. I wish you well My late father was a musician and my mother is a politico. He loved poetry - he said it teaches you how to feel. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
