Water flows

Water flows with the excess of souls to the sea
The river rolls through the mountains the fields and the trees
Society bleeds into the fast-flowing tributary
With the colour and music and picture of you and me

Rivers of clothes                   Rivers of babies
Rivers of photos                   Rivers of women
Rivers of speeches               Rivers of men
Flow into the sea we call history

Filtered flowing humanity flowing to the sea
The sea crumbling into the ocean
How many souls live lifeless in the sea forgotten?
How many sins that are ending and beginning
And drifting

And life becomes a fishing fleet fighting the tempest
And death becomes the jaws of Leviathan opening

Into His halo in the cosmos
The postman delivers a letter
The letter finishes with a full stop
The full stop is the size of the earth

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.

  1. What a powerful poem! I love your imaginative style and unusual format, along with the mythological allusions, the flowing ”River” refrains and omnipresent musicality.
    ”And life becomes a fishing fleet fighting the tempest
    And death becomes the jaws of Leviathan opening…”
    Ominously evocative and resonant today! 👏
