Bridges unite

IMG_0434

Stretching from here to there

Open to the elements

No walls to hold you in

It unites us

.

Strength and structure

Carrying such weights

Crossing obstacles

Resisting movement

.

Over the smallest river

And the widest valley

your sweeping view

and rolling horizon

.

Life flows below you,

Connecting our conscious life

without you, no bond to each other

with you, the Friendship is endless

The River of Life

The stream gently trickles along

This babbling brook, singing merrily

It’s water continually changing and moving

Like the river, we are always doing things for the first time

 

Twisting, turning, gaining momentum

It bends and twists, deepening and widening

With uncertainty, like life, this cannot stagnate

not knowing the depth or the speed, we take a chance

 

Gushing the river flows faster, it crashes on rocks

Swirling and changing direction

In life you can’t push against the water,

Flow Freely yourself, just as the river does

 

Like life, things change change

A dam diverts it, takes it on a new path

We can do the same if we take a chance

Following a new branch if we choose

 

The river does not live in the past

Nor does it live in the future

It lives in the present, in this moment only

Living once, then it meanders away

 

The trickling waters slows right down

Taking time to gently wander

Take a step back for a moment, look at your life

Take a chance, before it meanders away.
