coursing down a misty stream
quiet as the mountains
vast as a desert
twisting as a vine
the water cold but unaffecting
floating, ripples surround
and disappear
vanish
whisper hush the water trickles
caresses lush watery fingers
around arms
throat
skin
unmoving
yet sliding over the water
graceful as whales
flexible
simplicity of a fish
one with the gentle
yet powerful current
going on to eternity.

i wrote this poem while listening to "Song of the Banshee" and this poem reflects what i imagined while listening to the song... it's hauntingly beautiful...
