…….a long time ago…..


Born in the mountains

As a tiny stream I flow

Destined to meet you

Following the only path I know

Forcing against the currents

Of the winds that come and go

Hoping someday you’d join me

Among the lands high and low

I would then cease to be a stream

And into a lovely river I’d grow

As we reach the sea, we’d be one

Like we were, a long time ago

And carrying the wisdom of the sea

Towards the sky’s heavenly glow

We’d fly once again

Like we did, a long time ago….



This was written for the Poetry Potluck 🙂 Hope you all like it!!

    Good as always Alethea…
    I always like to read good poems once in a while, and hence come to your blog. And you never disappoint me, instead give me surprises with a better poem each time.
    The ideas you bring in are just fabulous. This work of art just shows the creativity within you…
