Y/. Abundance - Poem by Aufie Zophy

The silent river
feeds its abundant water
to the thirsty sea.

Who's enjoying peace
the quiet giving river
or receiving sea?


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was in doubt whether or not to add the second stanza
What do you all think, should it be there or not?

    River Waters Flow To Kiss The Sea

    I have made through rapids still waters a long night journey
    upon a dark river twisting down through ravine mountains
    in still calm rocky rapids rush waters flowed to kiss the sea

    Beautiful poem. Yes, I agree with Valsa's comment. There is great joy in giving peace and joy rather than receiving. Second stanza makes it interesting. (Report) Reply

    The second stanza says it all.... there is greater joy or peace in giving than in recieving! The sea is turbulent where as the river is disturbed rarely by occasional tumult! ! (Report) Reply
