Description: The last storm completely changed parts of the river - so awesome and so spiritual - really so relevant to life and it's changes so sudden & yet the path is still there - just different

Along the Riverbank -------------------------------------------
The water rages
a 7-year flood
Brilliant green waters
by water & wind
Rising to power
& when they rescind
The path is anew
I walk along new pebbles
now making up the bank
& for all great & weak
I admire & I thank
as I stroll along
The extended metaphor and symbolism in this is amazing. I will most definately add this one to my favorites, and use it for an upcoming project. Thanks for giving me something to do my report on . Keep going. Wishing for more -Brian
I have always found it amazing and awe-inspiring to see the differences in the landscape after a huge flood, fire, catastrophe of sorts. and the beauty of rebirth and new growth always outlasts the horror of the pain that it brings when it destroys. to me it's a perfect shining example of the life cycle and never fails to bring a moment of pause-to-appreciate from me. thanks for sharing this piece!
first of all, i love rivers... something magical, moving and beautiful about them. i love the comparison of life to a river flowing and how you walk along life's riverbank, things always changing and moving and new paths to be walked along. peaceful and beautiful, just like you!
This is a very good poem with lots of meaning to it. I love the metaphor used here but also the poem about the river and how the storm changed it is good all in itself. But it does go well with how life is too. Things that have been a certain way or followed a certain path can change at the blink of an eye and leaving behind a sense of newness. Life certainly does this as well and you are sooooo right, not gone, just different. Another lovely nature poem by you. I gotta find some inspiration to write pretty soon...somewhere! Hee hee! Take care.
Life's riverbank...That is a very good comparison. Riverbanks are prone to constant change - just like our life's are. What flows beneath the bank, is our lives. And one could argue that we should not be standing on the riverbank of life, we should be in the water of our life.
As I read this write I see a river that expelled it's river banks moving in a way it never has before. Overflowing to capacity. Then as the waters go down, where water once was now there is mud, new paddles and new ground that you walk with so much wonder. Captured by the normality as if the abnormal never existed. Very Nice!
Short but very sweet. I like the details you gave about the river and the bank. I loved the imagery and the easy flow of this. I felt like I was walking with you. I think this was very weel written. I liked the way your love for nature stirs others to love it as well. Great job.
