Deep Within

Deep within the river
came an ardent quivering.
Flowing yet upholding
all the life formed in its wings.

Perhaps the greatest tragedy of all
lay in the mindset leading to the fall -
of hope and joy, of love employed
in innocence that came to feel
the glory of it all.

Deeper still, within the depths,
the reasons for their loneliness.
Intimate appeals of spirit seeking
something other than the breach
their mortal minds created.

Transcendence found within
the transformation. Changes
that astounded their equations.
A tingle as the gray clouds lifted.
Sunshine bright, the light they held
within their hearts and souls.

Released from incubation,
flight became the might
of majesty that reached
beyond the breech
of merely mental history.

It didn't have to stay the same at all.
Rising from the fall, a seed.
One tiny seed that grew
within them all. Tall, the trees.
So sweet, the flowers.
Blooming in forever minus hours.

Deep within the river
came an ardent quivering.
Flowing yet upholding
all the life formed in its wings.
Love will always bring
the best of all...
