2013 A Flowing River

The year 2013 was a flowing river of time
it flowed swiftly
sometimes over beds of rocks
sometimes over pebbles
it caressed the embankment
and kept on flowing
it was a smooth flowing river
and other times it was very tumultuous
still it kept on flowing and flowing
and flowing
then all of a sudden
it cascaded down
into a beautiful waterfall
to fill the natural pool below
and became the year 2014
enjoying this beautiful pool of time
enchanting unicorns run and play
with the fairies who come to dance
in the warm sunshine

    This poem makes a wonderful counterpart to COME ON A JOURNEY WITH ME. This one describes time as something we can see and follow, something which doesn't create mystery and confusion but rather moves straight to its destination - a New Year - which picks up and continues the forward movement. This is a celebration of VISIBLE TIME, because all of its actions are observable, all of its effects are known. How reassuring! But then turn to your other poem, and WOW! nothing can be seen clearly, everything is paradoxical. The one trait both poems share is your enthusiastic voice narrating two different journeys, making poetry out of the mysteries of nature.

    It's an interesting metaphorical poem. Time is like a flowing river and your poem describes it aptly.

    A great expression of how the year went, seeing it as a flowing river, and now the river has become something else a new year. May you have good fortune in your river.

    wonderfull creativity, , , really liked the way, , you wrote these lines
    then all of a sudden it cascaded down
    into a beautiful waterfall
    and filled the natural pool below
