Poem: The River of life

Out of the Sandbox

By Wade Prescott

Washes like a title wave over the land

      Flows into bountiful pools of cerulean, emeralds, and gold

          quickly dashes apart over black, gray and red speckled rocks.

             Downstream velocious, then strolling

               Over quarry,

                     beneath ore 

                        Traversing capacious flats

                Through bow, corner, turn, and twist

      succession is ever changing.

river moves mountains

     river runs through fields

        Green Forests

          Deep old Ravines

           Shaping cave and crag

           secret places of hidden truth

light plays on the water fooling the viewer with its muddled beauty

            blue sky, the green of life, and yellow energy that drives all

                  A beautiful reflection of you.

    water is full of life

   micro organisms

      building blocks

        effervescent sleek dancing leviathan

water gives life

   fields springing up around it

Water always returns to the ocean

   Mists to the havens

     Rains down again

Washes like a title wave over the land

      Flows into bountiful pools of cerulean, emeralds, and gold

          quickly dashes apart over black, gray and red speckled rocks.

             Downstream velocious, then strolling

               Over quarry,

                     beneath ore 

                        Traversing capacious flats

                Through bow, corner, turn, and twist

      succession is ever changing
