The Mighty Mississippi River and Me

Wandering its banks, this picture I took to meditate
upon. But so enamored, I began a conscious journey
with this little tug boat using all it's might to push
against the current with only the top of the barges
visible...Oh! but to know of cargo they do carry
beneath the surface always subject to what ever
is running down river..the honorable tug boat captain
ever aware..a sandbar could just appear to change
his course.

Realizing this Mighty river is in a hurry to reach it's
destination in fluidity with heaven and earth... for the
reality of it, a journey through life emerges in parallel.

Concurrently flowing with its depth, or shallow only to
wade amid the banks of least resistance...which course
will it be for you and me?

I say get wet...with towel in tow as needed, be Mighty
and Resilient! Much like the river that flows ever so
diligently, so can it be for our lives.

Your imagination is obviously nourished by your surroundings. Place and person come beautifully together in your last five lines. An interesting piece.

Good analogy for life, the mighty river with its barely submerged sandbars and currents which strive mightily to stop the flow of the tug and its cargo, much like life throws bad currents into our lives. I enjoyed this poem.
