Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Green River

The green waters of the river

Are for me like my life’s mirror

Life reflected in the water’s flow

At times rapid, at times slow,

Plunging forward in a waterfall

Like my response to a challenging call

Or weighed down by silt, lying stagnant

Like the drudgery of life, hope dormant

Carving its way through hills and valleys

Like I navigate through life’s alleys

Absorbing the weight of the soil on its way

Like I absorb experiences each day

Merging in the ocean at the end of its path

Like I shall return to the earth at last.
