Spring/Birth

Flowing from the earth
Unspoilt by the worlds refuse
Thus it begins new


Sping/Childhood

Dancing across fields
Sparkleing in the mid day sun
Free from all lifes cares


River/Adulthood

Broad and powerfull
Carrying boats on It's strong back
Living life fully


Delta/Old age

The river fans out
It is weary from travel
It rests in the sea

Hi Robert, I have missed your wisdom and it's nice to have you back with us.

I love this piece. Your words always touch my soul and make me stop and think. And for that, I thank you.

Hugs, Marti

Paladin~
Can't think of anyone I'd rather find returning to these pages blue ... than you~

These are completely lovely~

My favorite -

'Delta/Old age

The river fans out
It is weary from travel
It rests in the sea'


Par excellence on all~

You always spoke truthfully.
