Sad day today 9/11

stretching out my arms
     to float on the water
carried away in my dream
     gliding silently
past birches and sumacs
to rest in a cove
     but only for a moment
for life flows on
never stopping
     never yielding
through the rapids
     and onward
while I search for
     another moment
          in still waters

Psalm 23
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul.

This is an old untitled poem written after my divorce in the 80’s. I put it in a collection called “red poppies and green clover”. There is also a free download of a 1990’s chapbook on my website.  Life does go on, but we remember the past and learn from it. Sad day today.
