Do You Remember? - Poem by Sandra Fowler

The river in December
Do you remember?
When time was graying
Old leaves decaying?
We walked by that water,
That mindless water.
Watching two leaves in their reflection
Swept away without direction.
We walked by that water,
That mindless water.
Following them until we were frozen
For there was no end to that way once chosen.

    Those might have been sad memories. But these lines have come to us in a joyful tune of softness and warmth.
    Thank you so much, dearest Sandra.

    Your imagery as always is vivid and beautiful. This sets a pensive mood of a relationship not going anywhere. 10 Karin Anderson (Report)Reply

    A wise man once informed me that 'overwhelmed' referred to being taken overboard by the waters. I've read this before, but.... couldn't leave a comment. I was simply overwhelmed. (Report)Reply

    Ahhhh, gray again? But how pretty a scene you painted! Your poems take me away to quiet places, away from the hubbub of life. Thank you because people pay money for flights and hotels, I need only to come to Sandra Fowler's poetry :) Peace, Aisha (Report)Reply
