Today, I listened
to the river.
She sang so merrily.
She sang a song of tranquility,
on her journeys out to sea.
I watched her bend
through crooked turns,
on jagged rocks.
I watched her frolic,
Ohh,,,, so very free.
And then I saw a tiny golden leaf,
as she spiraled,,,, gently from the sky.
It fluttered gently like butterfly wings.
I watched her touch the burbling ripples,
and then she slowly landed on the water.
I watched her swirl in circles.
I saw her float so slowly,
to her journeys far away.
Yes, far away she will travel- far out into the sea.
Today, I listened to the rivers song,
a song of harmony.
If I were that little leaf
where my journey would lead me?
