169/366 - River In The Sky

2012.06.17
pixel
Laying flat on my back on an old bench looking up at the trees trying to touch leaves across the river of blue sky. Then drifting off to sleep as I floated down the river. When I woke up, it seemed like the leaves were a little closer together.

Lesson Learned: It is only well after the passage of time do we realize that time has indeed passed - live joyfully the time between now and then.

River Passage

The hard wooden bench –
Flat against on my back…
Looking to the sky.
Sinking into the wood.

Perfect position – to consider…
Ponder - the passage of time.
That river of moments –
Flowing between now and then.

Only its passage – time…
Reduces the raging river –
To a gentle stream… and to
Even less – and less.

It is then - the “now” of here –
Touches one tiny point.
Then entangles with – up “there”
The river is finally done.
