A River Of The Will

Rating: 4.7
A river of the will,
Plays in my mind.
I call her to come out,
But she stays behind.
She flows and says-
O, let me do the thing,
Which I desire;
I'm now a spring.
Just telling this,
She jumps from myself,
Riding on a cloud,
She flies like an elf.
With a pensive mood,
I sit by the window,
It starts raining outside,
My room gathers shadow.
I think, where's my will?
She isn't in the sky-
A whisper comes in my ear,
I can't believe my eye....
The drops of rain fall there,
Wetting my hot face,
Tell me-'Dear we are here,
Giving you cool brace.'
Then go back to the river,
To be again the cloud,
To flash with the thunder,
To roar aloud!

Outstanding poem, I quote my fav lines: I sit by the window, It starts raining outside, My room gathers shadow. I think, where's my will? She isn't in the sky-

Then go back to the river, To be again the cloud, To flash with the thunder, To roar aloud! A beautiful rendition of reincarnation, if you believe.

Congratulations on your beautiful piece... I sat and read it, as the rain fell in my little lakeside town on Long Island (New York) and realized how the rain washes us all.... PEACE.
