The River

“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow
of the past nor the shadow of the future.”
Hermann Hesse (1877 – 1962)

I come to the river
Heavy and tired to the bone
I lay down beside her
Grave as a slowly sinking stone
I see clear to the bottom, I watch how the shadows play
I’ve seen the water falling, I’ve seen the colors bleed away
