The River Of Uncertainty (poem)

Across the river of uncertainty

Refreshing shadows of a dark unknown

In empty streets where bitter winds have blown

What is that hidden voice which calls to me

-

It bridges past the truth I’ve come to own

And wrenches always from my destiny

Cool waters grant my soul the will to see

What long forgotten calls me to atone

-

Refreshing spring where lovers use to play

Where Joys and kisses endlessly abound

And through our sleep such promises would flow

-

And so I’m taken by some yesterday

Across uncertain river where I drowned

By dream whose heart I broke so long ago

Much in life is uncertain, but that's what makes it such an adventure, especially when we have the certainty of faith to hold. Very creative poem.

Beautiful words of poetry and a jazz sax.

They perfectly accentuate one another.

I love the river imagery. You have a wonderful ability to mix beauty and sadness in your poems, Martin.

Oh Martin, much said here about so much we live through. How sad is the broken heart we leave behind?

Voted up and awesome.
