Tonight at the brook ....a poem

I had begun to get lazy for the april days
to end and may to find a way

Today a warmer wind where the last of
april's rain finally did meet may

I sat by the brook contemplating life
love and the universe

And ended up as confused as I had begun
maybe even worse

There's something about fast water though
it has a way of cleansing

Damned if I really didn't need that with
this life commencing

Okay so I have turned sixty and feel as pert
as a rutting buck

I don't quite get it though I never seem to
experience anything but bad luck

I found myself sitting there with natures perfection
surrounding me and yet

I just wasn't tuning in ....or should I say tuning out
but I'm gonna make a bet

As time rolls on I'm going to sit by that stream
more and more and then

As if it were all I needed ....and then some
that stream will finally be my friend

Nice poem ahorseback. Seems to be I have been writing similar themes, about Spring and being friends with a river, contemplating life etc. I enjoyed the read.
