The Collection

Ethereal shadows impress themselves upon upon stone walls. Beneath the bridge, a river rolls upon his journey; miles of crystal crests, collecting unpublished stories he and friends will enjoy. Among the many stories, footpath pebbles trod upon by history’s children; mostly unknowns living solitary lives of struggle and heartbreak. Leaves catch a ride on a wave, as they flit from their trees on a engaging afternoon breeze. A broken tree branch, with offspring may take a swim today; if the swifter winds decide to challenge it. A few mosquitoes or flies will hitch a ride on the back of a bullfrog; trying to enjoy the show. A doe stops to take a long drink of this cool, embracing life force; not fazed by the bridge walkers. These are Nature’s stories, whispers only the water hears as it gathers them for its ocean-bound anthology; oh, the wondrous tales marine life will share when it’s finally read; sacred.
