Comes to be that I am dead
Spread my ashes on the river
That I might be trapped in the stones
Lining edges and bottom
And drown forever in the words
They spoke to me
When ears were not enough
To hear all that was said.

Then come Spring
And she is pregnant with flood
Let me be covered in silt
Carried from hills that
Were my playground
Of learning to see beauty
And that all things
End

Someday when all the ages
Have rolled past any who would care
Or know
         Iíll be stone
To be skipped along
The rippled waves
From some childís hand

Maybe then
Iíll understandÖ

and all the words
and all the space between
will come clear and I
can begin
        to truly live again

"Maybe then

If truly living were dependent on clarity and understanding...none of would have the ablity to be happy...

We accept what we may never understand...and move on.

It was a profound writing...one which I read again just to enjoy the talent behind it.

LONG time -- no read, my friend...  It's so refreshing to read one of yours after all this time.  This one, in its own way, made me picture the novel "A Separate Peace" for some reason -- the tone and mood, I suppose.  You always have a way of flowing with your words -- much like the river described.  Solid expression.

Thank you Captain.

I found there lives within me,

After reading a poem of yours where you said you were writing a series, I decided to try to find where the series began.   I haven't yet, but this title captured my eye, and am glad it.  Liked your analogies!  Very cleverly written.

I won't say it...I won't, I won't.

But you know!
