The moon shimmers in green water.
White herons fly through the moonlight.
The young man hears a girl gathering water-chestnuts:
There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses - he was worth a thousand pound,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty- the unhidden heart-
After Li Po
While my hair was still cut straight
across my forehead
In my first sleep
I came to the river
And looked down
Through the clear water -
I came from the sunny valleys
And sought for the open sea,
For I thought in its gray expanses
My peace would come to me.
The river tumbles onwards to the sea,
And rushes, racing over rocks and stones,
And boulders, branches, pebbles, sand and scree,
Singing so many melodies to me,
Koening knew now there was no one on the river.
Entering its brown mouth choking with lilies
and curtained with midges, Koenig poled the shallop
past the abandoned ferry and the ferry piles
I know a green grass path that leaves the field,
And like a running river, winds along
Into a leafy wood where is no throng
Of birds at noon-day, and no soft throats yield
Brodie rained for; 9 months,1 week, and 1 day..and made a River
water-wisdom in river of impossibility and multi-universal truths of socratic knowthyself -cup
Self-realization of no-self-no-ego river of mental formations.
the river the river whispers memory my life bleed waters
the river the river flows extravagant quiet birth born dreams
the river the river drowns lifeful measures time scent hunts
river flows river flows witnesses myriad life cycle dramas
river flows river flows whispers resolute relentless run reasons
river flows river flows follows fragrant left wind whispers
can a river be defined by banks in contrast flow change
can a river be defined by spring stream distant shadows
can a river be defined by width of banks flood drought shift
A Psalm for Muhammad Ali
by Michael R. Burch
They say that gold don't tarnish. It ain't so.
