The Flow

Relax and Relief

The world is silent,

Save the sound of the stream.

The sound of water gliding

Over the soft-edged stones

That had endured

The gentle waters.

The water curves and flows

Around the tips of your fingers

As your hand graces the current.

A stone tumbles into the stream

And a splash, a trickle, of water, meets your arm.

A small interruption,

Before the stream melts together again.

You lay on its bank

While your hand remains in the water.

Your eyes softly close

As the serenity cleanses your hand.

The calm, delicate, smooth current

Washes away the doubts and the sorrow,

Like a soft, gentle embrace.
