Timeless flows , Memory banks....






Winner of the Blogadda "Tribute to Dad" contest June 25, 2010.


Submitted for the Blogadda "Tribute to Dad" contest


A deep river
flowing with
a sense of
gratitude and peace,
conscious,
encouraging,
but
non interfering
in the
troubles,
perturbations
and upheavals
on the
buzzing banks.





Protecting
those in boats
bobbing along,
buoyant
for the kids,
nestling and playing
within
the compassionate waves,
with
a glare, for those
insulting
nature's rules....

And
One day,
tired,
slowing down,
hand on my shoulder,
searching my face,
the flowing river
slowly
spread thin
terminally,
before becoming one
with the
endless sea.

Leaving behind
memories
warmly cocooned,
etched deeply
on minds,
enriching
the living plains
and plateaus,
every
glowing moment,
and
not just
on this
windswept,
wet,dreary
torrential
Father's Day.........
