dawn reflections shimmer
a blood-red birthing
the new journey meanders in small ripples
searching for a known truth
testing the waters

a small stream traverses
the land, growth is key
consciousness actuates a forward passage
as water rushes fast,
over stones ahead

From the sun's dying light
the darkness succumbs
to the passage of time, the river still flows
in the celebration 
of a life well lived
