The River

The river Gently flowing in the moonlight
The stars like diamonds gazing from above
And life it seemed so vast
All present and all past
As all existence glowed with mystic love

I felt those velvet raindrops as they touched me
Caressing my soft skin to make it glow
Sweet mystery astounds
Such beauty all around
And all that ever was it seemed to flow


I searched so deep within to find the answers
As tears they softly flowed from happy eyes
And that peace it was so deep
My life felt so complete
As all around the rain fell from the skies

And then it came, I felt that truth within me
That I was nought, and yet so very much
As that truth within my soul
It made me feel so whole
As love looked down and filled me with its touch

You do write beautiful poetry, and as Robert said, "a gift of serenity" too. I used to walk to a small lake near where I lived as a teenager at sundown- always calmed me down. This brought back good memories. Warm regards. Aqua M.

A gift of serenity my friend. This gentle flowing poem stirs the memories of early youth and days spent fishing on the banks of the river. And the appreciation felt- of just being alive! A fav.. a true gem...
