Flowing Down The River

I am a rose, plucked and placed into the swirling river of this life flowing ‘tween currents and eddies through rocks and quiet streams. At times, I plunge down waterfalls rife with tears and suffering at times, the waters become calm offering rest and respite. I float through the streams of time until the end, when the river runs dry until God reaches down and lifts up my soul, in the rapture of this life. Written on 5/20/2018
