Gestalt of a River

9 Mar

Oh, melancholy blue
Your ripples cast shadows
O’er impermanent sands
Revealing patterns
in well-worn paths.

Oh, royal violet
Intermediary of earth and sky
Gentle ruler
Of that transcendent place
Between past and future.

Oh, leaf
Oh, earth
Oh, ground beneath
All that which is reflected
Above
All that which is contained
Below
All that which moves
Within.
