Steel Waters: A Poem

Updated on August 15, 2011

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...

      YW: You know, 'There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God', Ps 46.

      Good point! That's actually very encouraging. Thanks for sharing. :)

      I see; ty.

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

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

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