It Passes…

Flow, M. Mair, original art

Flow, Margaret Mair, original art

And life, it passes
Flowing, rolling, roiling,
Over, by, around us;
Picks us up and
Carries us forward –
Sometimes creeping
Musty and slow,
Sometimes flying
Furious and fast,
Sometimes tumbling
Boisterous and wild
Tipping us
Over and over and over,
And we go
Where it takes us
Will we or not,
Drifting and stumbling
And screaming blind
Into dark corners
Hoping for the light
And the quiet
We seek.

  1. Margaret, you’ve taken me on a journey, the journey we all go on, with all its magic and ups and downs!

  2. Indeed. Who knows what the next turn of the river will bring? Thanks for this thoughtful combination of picture and verse.
