Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Earth Waters

Ever onwards move the relentless waters of life,
Not stopping for rocks or logs through surges of strife.
As always and with ease, agitating precious beliefs
And sometimes churning out gnawing griefs,
These ripples and patterns of fluid rhythm,
Silently help to create huge bubbles in time.
But just as easily can form every oasis of calm
As within the frenzied whirlpools of pain and harm-
Do our powerful Earth waters constantly flow.
In currents of strength, are quenched the needs and hurts,
Of people from vast mountains, forests, plains and deserts;
Of all our humanity buried and borne on a trembling thirst
The fluidity of our nature makes us malleable forms,
Powerful enough to create and resist all kinds of storms.

- J.Bibi
