A River - Poem by Joyce Chelmo

Can’t stop looking at your picture,
hypnotized.
Your beauty a blaze from within.
The attraction would
not be there if it were not
for the essence you offer.

A cool drink for a parched soul.

A lake gathering fresh waters
of wisdom
from the flow of your river.
Mesmerized, captured, infatuated.
I want to drink you,
because,
a lake refuses no river.

    I once had an idea similar to this, but I just could not get it out on paper to save my life! Your version is excellent! Better than I would have done. (Report) Reply

    Phillip thank you so much.. I actually have a drawing that goes with this but can't post it here. Glad you liked it without the drawing.. and that you understood my meaning.

    Dear Joyce, You express the truth, where we receive our wisdom, our life, the source of great waters is found in each stream that enters us. Thanks for this blessing. Phillip (Report) Reply
