Stepping Stones

In response to Sue Vincent’s Thursday photo prompt.

Thursday Photo Prompt – Stepping Stones – #writephoto

One, two, three, the dream

In fun and seeking sun they came

Where two had been and deeper known

To newer one the stones of trust were shown

The river flows…the waters stream

Two, three, one, the flowing dream

A different journey is begun

As bold and blind, she leaves behind

Each stone upon the skins of gentle kind

Three, two, one, the flowing dream

The river flows…the waters stream

And now, they walk on different stone

Where one is three and three are one

Upon a path with wider tones

As starry children, just begun

The river flows… The waters dream

There are no rocks to break the stream

Of he, or she, or me

Three rivers flow as three as two as one

and meet the sea…

  1. Brilliant! Reading this poem felt like freely flowing in an eddy of a mystifying river’s current. I was caught spinning and lost, yet moving along with the current all the same. Thanks for the ride!
