The Choice is a River

Photo by Sindre Stru00f8m on

 I  made a choice
 hopped on the boat
and paused 
to look at thee
resembling a lot like me
but also not me
while I  embroidered patterns 
a little bright 
a little sober
on the pashmina that conceals 
that image engrossed in endless reverie.

The cascading river
took twists & turns
meandering wildly 
as I searched for the reflection 
now no more visible
a state of despair & then a  roar.
Now the river feels warm
entering the  sluggish mode
as I sit on the same boat 
and slowly as I lookup
the clouds float so speedily
winking at me 
as I hold on to HIS hand firmly
the image now  is a little clear
resembling a lot like me 
but also not  me

Love ,
