This one 'I baked earlier'; but I thought it mght be a reposte to Alan's Brain poem




The River

Consider the river.

Is it just in its water?

Or is it just in its banks?

Surely, it is neither;

and yet, it is both.

Consider ourselves.

Are we just in our mind?

Or are we just in our body?

Surely, we are neither;

and yet, we are both.

The river will eventually

merge into the sea;

just as you and me,

will merge into eternity.

A very deep analogy. As rivers often are.

Wow. Our spirit isn't merely the sum total of these elements, plus but we are all of it as well. Wonderful poetic exposition. Two thumbs up, coz all I've got is two. Thanks for sharing.

This is almost 'exquisite' allegory. Very cleverly constructed, I feel. Allen

Hi Dougie should have read this earlier,
But I was too busy procrastinating on my latest poem,
Sometimes I look at others poems and see the poem
Within, I like the ebb of your poem, The flows not bad either
