Steel Waters: A Poem


Wait for the shimmering glitter to land,

Before you open your eyes and touch my hand,

There's a mystifying world for us to see,

A brilliant reflection, a hint of heaven for you and me,

Look, there's a wavy body of liquid crystal,

A golden meadow without thorn or thistle,

There might be hills, there might be turns and twists,

But still, in our minds, we pen our adoration in lists,

Trusting and hoping, longing and wishing,

We jump into the sparkling stream despite it's swishing,

Together we will be interwined in heart and spirit,

Singing a unity song for every creature to hear it,

Sink or swim, happiness or unwanted chagrin,

Despite our worries, flaws, hesitations, and sin,

Our eyes will dance, our arms will fold, our lips will form a sharing smile

Let's be partners for a moment, let's rest in this beauty for just awhile...

Well written. The crystal, is this the river that you're referring to?

Thanks! Yes, I was referring to the river or stream.

I see; ty.

Beyond the immediate romantic context, however, the river reference in Psalm 46 is similarly interesting, I think, anyway.
