Riverside Peace (a poem )

There’s something about a river

that draws me to its side

Effortlessly advancing

toward a lake or sea.


With abundance of freshness

it’s filled with life and health

Uninterrupted flowing

beyond the distant fields.


From gentle humble beginnings

– a fact of life itself

Amazingly appealing

amid a lonely past.


Whispers of the river embrace

the peace renews my mind

Majestically embracing

yonder pathways I see.
