While The River Flows

Yesterday I had so much on my mind
Thoughts flowed reckless with nowhere to go
Until the day I found an endless reservoir
Next to many others on a utopian land
Where fantasy and reality coexist and play

That was over a half a decade in the past
When I filled my pen with thoughts of my soul
I began articulating a journey etched in time
Finding a hidden love that awakened my heart
Painting metaphors on canvas in soulful words

I’m still sitting quietly by the rivers edge
Watching flowers of past and present bloom
I can feel my pen yearning to spill its words
To quench the thirst of these empty pages
For years to come while the river flows

* I was just notified that this is my 6 year anniversary with WordPress. I can’t believe it’s already been 6 years since I started writing here. I never thought I would still be doing this especially after spending some time away. I want to thank you all so much for continuing with me on this journey.❀

  1. Omg!!! that is so amazing! I can see how I might still be here in another 4.5 years too though… I keep trying to tone it down or take time away, but it’s so much fun, overall, I keep coming back! I started my writing revolution not long after you did (2015), but it was all private for a long time. Getting social with writing changes everything in various ways.
    Your poem is so beautiful, Tone… and with the perfect metaphors. πŸŒŠβœοΈπŸŽ‰β€οΈ

    1. Thank you so much Lia! πŸ™πŸ˜Š I might take my breaks here and there but like you I couldn’t stay away forever, doing this is so much fun for me as well. Getting social with writing definitely changes everything. I have met a lot of amazing and talented people over the years that I have learned a lot from.
