If I Let My Mind Meander

If I let my mind meander - like a river backwards through time - past rocks and turbulent waters and also through the calm times when the surface of that river was smooth as glass - I go further back to a time when my life flowed like a stream, less complex and rolling on with hope. Always, though, I end up at the source - at that place of splendid sweetness where the water was a clear fresh spring bursting forth to feed the passion of a glorious waterfall. And always I remember you, sweet darling, as the shimmer of the sunlight on that fresh and sparkling mountain spring. April 2, 2017 For More To Me Poetry Contest Sponsor: William Kekaula

Exquisite, as always, Andrea - tenderly penned with care and emotion, as a lost love should be, in my opinion. We are so lucky to have had such muses, when so many never find true love. I adore this and I'm fav-ing - blessings, Friend, and congrats! :-) <3

You're title caught my eye, sweetie pie.... been some time since I've read "meander" ...this is really sweet and romantic and you've really managed to give water a special meaning for the speaker :) btw, thank you, I buckled with what you said and made some resurface...but they have an expiry, haha
