Is Your River Flowing?

Life is not a black gummy tar pit
Lost and stuck in immutable stasis
Of concrete statuesque construction
But flowing like the blue waters
Of mighty rivers or the oceans
Sometimes slow and others rapid
Over smooth pebbles and falls
Shaping and cutting its path
Through loose shale and molten rock
Sometimes solid, frozen and still
Awakening to the thaw of our might
Direct the gush of vibrant life-force
To follow or forge a new stream
Energy and vigour churned and stirred
To flood the meaning and purpose of life
With excitement and joy surge forward
Stagnant a choice
Alive another choice
