365 Snap Shots if life: Day 236

The River Colored Red

The sound of mighty rushing waters,

elevates the soul,

to another dimension,

a higher plateau.

ย 

ย 

Walking, step by step on this daily journey,

taking in the beauty

of what Your hands created,

fashioned, designed, orchestrated…

ย 

 

 

An eternity ago?

Perhaps!

With You a thousand years is like a day.

Maybe You put it there for our simple pleasure.

ย 

ย 

You are mighty in your power,

magnificently majestic.

Only You know the intricate details of,

the sum of all of our thoughts at this very hour.

ย 

ย 

Those who deny your existence,

who boldly mock your presence;

all they need to do,

is open up their blinded eyes.

ย 

ย 

Yes, tune in and hear the sounds,

of mighty rushing waters,

cascading, rushing, making way,

bringing healing to the sickly souls.

ย 

ย 

There is a river,

saw it just the other day;

its flow will never be controlled,

through mere human ingenuity.

ย 

ย 

For it contains the water of life-

divine intervention.

Sent from up above to purify, banish our defilement.

Open up your heart! Let the river flow!

ย 

ย 

That amazing Colorado River

runs through the arid desert.

Appropriately named Red,

for its twofold significance.

They dually co-exist:

In the natural, one nourishes the desert dwellers.

Providing them with life’s necessities,

making life bearable amidst a barren land.

ย 

Its counterpartโ€”the River of Life

“Living Waters”

Colored Red:

Crimson drops of divine blood.

Open up your dammed-up heart;

get carried away in the torrent!

Be immersed, inundated!

His love: never-ending, everlasting flow!

This is another edited poem that didn’t make it into my new book due out soon, SALSA! THE TASTE OF LIFE.
