The rivulet …


The rivulet flows as gently as love

onward to the sea ;

meandering in rills;

slipping through smooth folds

of sheep-cropped hills

past forget-me-nots

and celandines and stones, unhurriedly.

But here beside the ancient bridge

I see it gather pace and force

in swirls around rock detours

certain of its course.

Channelled now into a stream it sings a joyous song

as it nears the waiting shore

and like a returning lover enfolded in a lover’s arms

lost in the moment between waking and a dream

the rivulet merges inexorably with the welcoming sea … .
