Vessel of Dreams

Vessel of Dreams
Mercuric and clear, the river that we feel
Fast, noisy and warm, cold, silent and deep.
Memories that we shared, silver tears we shed
A boat that cleaved the river, heavy as lead
Carrying us assuredly, peacefully, for days, four
Hear the laughter, friends from afar
Partners in conservation, a connection yet un-read.
A night on the river, comrades of the light
Love for the river, bonding in spirits for a night
Flowing downstream we and the river know
We were gathered in the gentle hands of life
Showing us the way to meld with the sight
We parted renewed, refreshed dreaming the rest
For the journey a part of our dream quest, the rest
Lays in life-filled solitude behind and the past.
