RIVER OF LIFE

River

A moving landscape

That has no fixity

Moves from one place to the other

To take the shape of the place where it flows

Merge into the sea

When submerged into the sea

It becomes a part of humanity

Like blood and tears

River is nature

As forests and mountains are

But river is not forest, or mountain

It flows

It is deep, or shallow

It is dry, or flooded

It is not dense or sparse

It has no ups and downs

Life is like a river

River needs life

As life needs river

Mars had rivers, aeons ago

Mars has now no river

It doesn’t have life

Mars couldn’t sustain rivers

Time is the river of passing events

We don’t ride

A mountain of life

Or, roam in the forest of life

We cross

The river of life
