Lessons from Rock and River


Sky dark
clouds dense charcoal
the rain stitching lines from sky to earth
in the canyon
next to the river

listen
the river flows
passed hard and stable rock
two different forms of matter
each by uniqueness
gives importance to the other
a perfect relationship

Harmonize with things
that flow by you
like the rock
I think

   then

thunder trembles
the sky to open
the flowing current
steady
    pounding
the river surges
sending hard and stable rock
careening
    far

The rock
as others catch against it
changes the path
of the river

The worlds ever changing
nothing stays the same
I think

Martie~
This is just awesome !
I don't believe I saw it before.
What a remarkable piece.
The flow of the river of life
changed by the rock ...
Who'da thunk it !  
YOU
I think !
Love it .. love you.

Hi Martie,

You have made my heart tremble in sheer delight for I knew the rocks could speak, needing of answers to this changing life of mine you have giving me the realizum of things that I could not harmonize with before. The rain has been pouring but I think that there is relief insight and if it calls for change that is OK change might be good.

Thank you so much for sharing this,

Love,  Cerenity
