O.S.I. (River)

Happy Sunday all!

I've written the following poem for O.S.I. The theme this week is river.

A gift
In this river
Of tears
Falling against
My cheeks

Don’t weep
For me
I’ve watered
My garden
In a river
Of tears

Smile breaks
The mighty deep
Pure joy
Jumping in
A river
Of tears

Ending is such a joy!! The river flowing in the deep embrace of the mighty seas!!

A whole lot of tears here, W.G.
I love the lines,
"I’ve watered My garden In a river Of tears."
I also like the way your poem progressed from sadness to joy and also from a small stream down the cheek to enough wet to jump in.
And then there are the great minds ...

Beautiful one Write Girl...though the river of tears is quite poignant but ended on a happy note!
