River (A poem)

river Gubala

River
placid ebbing by
Mystic depths spiraling
strengths in undertow

River
Sister of the sky
one mission, forward, Semper Avanti
never the same as you were a moment ago

River
a leaf falls upon your face and swiftly goes
aloft man’s true time piece
from seasons pressing urgency
reminding me, things change
even when they stay the same.
