Calming imagery from nature

River flowing down a winding path

caressing and eroding the earth gently

brushing green as it flows past

maintains life. Growth, plenty


Frogs leaping on water lilies

ripples expanding. Endless

a dragonfly trespasses

and into the frog’s mouth it goes. Defenceless


A bear washes the day’s trouble away

the river flowing strong

it cools its grizzly neighbour down and sways

around him and flows along


Salmon swimming against the stream

to lay its offspring it seems

as they go up a small waterfall

a claw swipes, and that’s its downfall


If you're feeling too calm, check out the accompanying poem to light a little fire within

    The circle of life. And it moves us so. The pic is really calming. Further downstream we too, are eating some salmon.

  • Oh no, the dragonfly and the salmon! Well, that's how life is, you get snuffed out. Loved your poem!
