The Water’s Edge
I sat by the water’s edge
all I could hear was the water
flowing in a graceful trickle
I was at peace that day.
The gentle breeze danced on my skin
as it caused tiny little ripples
it was pleasing, so pleasing I dipped my feet in off the end of the dock.
As I sat there gazing out across the water I started to wonder…..
What legacy shall we leave behind for younger generation as they find their way here.
The water is peaceful
so we shall leave peace
The water is calm
so we shall guide them to calmer days
The water is clear
so we shall leave them with clear thoughts of who they want to be
and make sure they don’t become muddled in who others want them to be.
The water makes us tingle
washes us clean
it removes the smoggy film from our eyes so that we may see truth
it lifts our spirits from dark shadows that want to hold us back.
Our legacy is here to make sure that every budding child who wants to write out their dreams as they see them, the way they want the world to see them, raw and real, not altered by another who distorts their visions.
Our legacy is to have the new step forward, learn from the old
thrive and leave as many rose petals as they can on the footpath.
Generation after generation will find their way to the water’s edge and like you and I, the birth of each pen will spill forth and flow always keeping the waterfalls flowing
and when the rains come the rivers will rise and the quills will dance.
Our legacy will never see death or its demise
because the words will always flow
An eternity of creativity will light up the night sky like fire flies
and they will dance.
