Transluscent lines of a river's fold

Gems of blue and fish of gold

Shimmer and dance, the embrace of an old friend

Down the steady shores of a riverbend.


Smooth canoe tracks over gentle rides

 Over gentle stones with a gentle glide

Gentle, gentle. Will these softened turns end?

Down the steady shores of a riverbend?


But is the river really steady?  

Or maybe I'm just not ready

Skies are whispy and clouds in flame, is this pretend?

Down the steady shores of a riverbend?


These waters are always churning

Always flowing and always turning

With my future on a teater, on this brand new pend

Down the steady shores of a riverbend


I can't see past these rugged waves

Icecap tips, I'm the waters slave

How will I ever live, if my dreams cannot extend

Down the steady shores of a riverbend?


Familiar lines are washed and shed

Blue walls are now crashing instead

Is this really where I belong, where my fate will end?

Down the steady shores of a riverbend

well this is for :iconwriters--club: 's writing tournament for ROUND III OMG i feel so accomplished :D anyway the theme is:What Awaits at the Farthest Ends. i chose a river because its kinda endless almost and it cant really end. it just changes. I used "riverbend" because life is unpredicatble and anything can happen and you cant see beyond the bend of the river which acts as life. :D lol welll wish me luck and any feedback would be aamazing thank you guise! :P
