The River

Spread the love

river-1030851_1920

Shall we head up to the river?
Flowing crystal tide.
Its surface reflective as a mirror.

Perch, ruffe, trout reside;
Choose a fishing rod and reel.
Up-to the margin of the river stride.

This atmosphere surreal;
The two of us together.
Our mind questioning if it’s real?

An autumn gust blows;
Crisp copper leaves.
The precise moment, he proposed.

Shall we head up to the river?
A moment deep, that chants forever.

    Nature in the raw is always inspiring; no more so that than a raging river that demonstrates such energy that we are awestruck.

    Well, admittedly I would rather head DOWN the river than up! I used to do some canoeing and found going up river very challenging. Hopefully, as in your poem, going up river with a loved one might make the journey easier. Smiles!

  16. Yes, please!

    Fascinated to learn that rivers in your part of the world are home to exactly the same kinds of fish as in more temperate climes. (I guess I never thought about it before.)

  23. Sage says:

    From the end of the old gospel song, “Shall We Gather at the River”:

    Soon we’ll reach the silver river,
    Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
    Soon our happy hearts will quiver
    With the melody of peace.

    I live for flowing water–whether it be tides or rivers running downstream.

  24. Your words immersed me completely in this welcoming atmosphere. I was there at the waters edge of the river, watching the fish swim backwards.

    So lovely.
