Who is this river? I did not meet her earlier?
Oh, she is eternally new.
In each pulse of time, she rushes forth to become
what she was not a pulse ago.
Her watery canvas boldly moves
joyously, bubbling, gushing forth,
through the will of her own,
because this she knows for sure,
I must never stop.
The river has no fear
she need not capture her immensity
in a standing pool of fear and ferocity,
because the river bed below is still,
and in that tranquility,
there is courage for the river,
to move, be and become, untold.
With love and hugs,
