Life Moves Like Water


Falling swiftly and darkly into itself

Wandering dreams float in
on the river of evening
from the gentle shifting tides
a whispering flow of night-secrets

The slow drift of foreshadowed pain

Unwept tears
and sorrowful waters
ripples in all directions
always in tremulous motion

Spreading to the farthest shore

Life moves like water
falling swiftly and darkly into itself
further into the murky depths
unfathomably deep

These waters contain me

Yet we, being one soul
the thread of you finds me
with empty hands
and seeks an answer in kind

From my heart to yours
