Have you ever seen
in you life
more wonderful!

than the way the river,
every night,
sails and splash,
flows toward the ocean of the seas

and into the rocks or soil,
or the green yellow leaves
and is vanished--
and how it swishes again.

out of shadeness,
every daylight
to the other part of the side,
like green-blue algae

clashing into its peaceful boulders, speak, on a sunrise in early spring,
at it's energetic almighty miles
and did you ever have anything
just like a touchable kiss
do you think there is any where,
in any language,
a word billowing enough
for pleasure

that fills you
for the greatest ocesn
invites you to dance,
as the currents drift towards you

as you stand there,
empty- handed--_
or have you too
turned from this world--

or have you too
gone crazy
for power
for love?

This piece is about nature on beauty. The inspiration for this piece was Mary Oliver. I want people to see the way I thought water is beautiful.
