Each life passes
like the journey
of water
on a great river.

Rise to meet
each morning anew
and accept what brings
the river that day.

Some days are rushed
with the toss and tumble
of white-water rapids.
Other days flow gently by,
barely moving
with the kind stillness
of back-water eddies.

Take care to discover
what there is to enjoy
in each rolling day.
Remember, variety is one
of the joys of life.
All things pass,
good, bad and in-between.
We all will meet once again
in the vast blue oceans
from which all waters come
and to which all rivers return.

Dewey Dirks
