The Source

For In Tandem #9

Bright waters of oblivion, in deepest streams of consciousness,
ripple and refresh all hidden corners of our lives.

Their currents move us forward at a pace the river chooses,
and as human flotsam-jetsam, we all float, but who knows why?

Still across the crystal surface of this source which bubbles upwards,
the shadow leaves goes whirling, each a life with its own path.

But these rivers do not falter, are fulfilled by every journey
without a thought of where they flow or what is meant to be...

This was what the second In Tandem image called forth this afternoon -  I only wrote down the words - I leave the interpretation to the reader!
And today. 8/10/2012, I've linked to IGWRT, fo a second airing...

  1. Love this... to me this is about folowing our conscience/ God's will.

  2. What will be - will be.
    What a poetic way to say.

  3. To me, this is about learning that one cannot control everything. You can work with what is or struggle against it and be frustrated.

  5. I like this one better, although the continuity throughout the seasons on your other in Tandem has a nice feeling to it too. Great images here though.

  9. I like the two pieces, and am surprised by the difference in their tone and construction. One better than the other? No. Each is a stand alone piece conveying quite different sensations and meanings.

  16. Sometimes it would be nice to know where that river was carrying us, but I suppose that is not the nature of water. Beautiful writing!

  17. Nice verse, Jinksy. It made me think:

    Where the river flows it cares not.
    But those in the swim have a choice,
    man was made by God to be that way.

  18. But who knows why. We do like to question, but in the end, life is always better experienced, accepting the "river's" pace.

  19. Oooo...not everyone floats. Just the survivors.

  20. Oh, Jinksy, you and I must have been channeling the same thoughts, similar rivers, recently.
