Along the River

April 25, 2019

Alongside the river

You have seen so much pass by

You have offered comfort and peace

A place to shed quiet tears of grief

You have offered shelter

Shelter from the storms of life

You have hosted celebrations

Celebrations of life and of love

Some see a building

A building made of cold stones

I see possibilities

I see wonder

I see so much more

As I reflect with you

Along the River

Inspired by the poetry of Christine Valters Paintner in her book, “Dreaming of Stones” available online at Dreaming of Stones

Picture was taken at Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park
