Essence

My new poem, Essence, part of the new collection of poems that I am working on.  

The flowing river does what it does best
Flows
Over rocks and stones
Rushes and roars
Over waterfalls on its way to the sea
Sprays
A delicate rainbow mist
Gem-like droplets hanging in the air
Iridescent
Like sparkling confetti tossed skyward by a child
Hovers then descends

Wanders
Through this ancient city
Weaves
Past buildings it once knew as something else
Factories and watermills
Provides
A peopled river town
History that came to pass and went
Disappears
Flowing onward toward oblivion

Flowing river
Until the day it does and is
No longer………..
