Sometimes quickly over rocks with ripples and waves, Moving so swiftly I get lost and afraid.
At times it slows, spreading deep and wide, Touching places unknown, feeling peace inside.
As the river bends and winds I go to and fro, Joined by streams and rains, as I learn and grow.
I give of myself to those who thirst, And I am changed for better or worse.
I draw near the ocean and my journey's end, And reunited with lost family and friends.
Part of the whole, the greatness, the sea, My body is loosed, my soul is free! Copyright © 2021 Brandon Ellrich
