Reed In The Wind

Wind shakes the roots of trees.
Water moves the rock to beach.
Signs found wherever we go,
Change above us and beneath.

Change is the way of life,
Seeking love our spirits thrive.
Others affect that within our hearts.
How we know we are alive.

Change comes to those we know,
Priceless gifts or sad malaise.
We think we've seen it all,
Just then it comes our way.

To live and embrace life's flow,
Grow straight, tall, andáthick-skinned.
Blown sand and changing tide,
Only bendáthe reed in the wind.

Author's Notes:
Inspired by a talk withámy mother. Thanks Mom!

A Reed,

as it changes

to the rhythm of the wind,

is there to remind us

 that as the years pass 

the rhythm & wind, the wind & its rhythm

are memory's cherished friend.


A Jamieson Quote

"So may the rhythm of life

always be your friend, Richard.

It's God given. It's God sent."


All the best,

Jamieson from Palm Beach

where you're only a breeze away

from ay Craibbean Island.

To live
and embrace life's flow,


Should be
written in stone.

Good write

Sage advice. We often are so afraid of change that we'd hang on to the devil we know even if we're dissatisfied rather than chance the unknown. Well said, Rich. Sometimes mother knows best. ML
