Moving Water

This is my response to day 7 of Jill’s “Songs of Unreason” series. The inspiration comes from this quote:

“The only answer I’ve found is the moving water whose music is without a single lyric” ~ Jim Harrison


 

Moving water’s music is without a single lyric,

Yet it speaks eloquently in babbling,

It speaks of all humanity’s searching

For our source, and our perseverance, sticking

To the goal while stumbling over little pebbles —

Yes, there is moving water in all people.

  1. Oh, well done! Do I see allusion here? The source (living water) and the pebbles (stumbling stones)… Really enjoy the irony of the eloquence in babbling! So glad you are joining in; you have your own unique voice in everything you write 🙂
