Cascades – Metaphors of a new start

 “Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. – Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

Pour down rushing cascades

Filling the voids in hungry glades

Creation born in the splashing enclave
Swimming in the abundant rains

Pictured for me in the grand scheme
An image of strength for my soul’s need

A river flowing from a source so high
Allowing fresh life, relieving my deep sigh

Frolic in peace, the swirling water alive
I swim with ease, living I no longer cry

A Dance With Peace – Thankfulness

 “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. 

 

changing-my-ways

Thoughts rush as the rising of the tide

Feeling the surge of water,
stating an undeniable purpose.


Inevitable force pushing the emotion of
my perceived condition away.


Searching for contentedness,
everywhere to be found


Coming from a revelation
of the placement of my soul


Giving myself to gratitude,
it removes the blinders


Leaving only the peace that dances with me
in joy of my discovery
