Rambling Waters

Original Poem

Written February 2013

A torrent of words, loose verses of prose

Swim wildly to barred and stubborn floodgates,

Spilling over the banks in tragic floods

Or splashing faces with stinging frankness,

Sometimes drowning those that gush too many

Rushing fervently as a waterfall

(when impassioned eulogies do require),

And seeping sorely when hearts are broken,

Monotonous creeks run on repeat day

after day: Trickling unimportantly.

But when the shy valleys are exposed and

Zealous, mad, gurgling rivers are witnessed

We can bathe in the healing ebb and flow

Of the pen’s nib and the words that engulf.
