The river washes against the mountain Like a ravenous beast

Eating away at the bones of the mountain

Dissolving all that looks solid

The rock

The granite

The sand

A sad picture?


Your journey of life is a river

You rearrange, dissolve and render

All that is in your path

The landscape is changed forever with your passing through

Be aware of your power

Be compassionate

Be wise

Bring your heart to see

Bring your love to hear

Bring your muscle to move

Then let the path be forged by your passing


Leave the land a better place

Than when you first arrived.
