The Journey

Standing at the waters edge;
A mere reflection staring back,
Like the skeletons of pines,
Hanging their lonesome heads.

The journey;
My life,
A meandering current
That touches both banks.

Seeing,
Feeling,
All that can be,
In myself.

The ragged ridge is hazy,
My future is there,
But unseen,
Curious;

That its ok though,
Assuredly,
The new day comes,
Spring,

When Pines return,
Renewed,
And life,
As the water,

Rolls on.
