Bend at the River End

Bend at the river end

Curving around the obstacles

And the mountains gracefully

Creating beautiful vistas

Of the horizon and the river.

Then merging into wide vast ocean

It’s destination, it’s liberation.

Teaching us that many times in life

We need to bend around the problems

Not cut through them obstinately

To over come them

Even when vision is blocked.

The problems themselves paving us the way

For beautiful turns in life

Taking us in paths different

Adding beauty and purpose to the journey.

When we come around

The sky and the sea are waiting to

Astonish with the bright blue horizon

The green trees and brown Earth smiling

With benevolence.
