Valley ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #174

Through the valley
Between the rocky mounts
Where days go by
Too fast to count

Then what remains
But moments lost
In timeless frame

I let them go
And count no more

Just live them all

In endless flow
So none pass by

For none remorse
Nor row against
The river’s course

The ripples
And the rapids play
The challenges
Of every day

Rapid ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #169

A chasm in my spirit formed
Through which my rage and pain now roils
Channelled through such rugged gorge
It churns and gouges rocky walls
With ill effect upon my soul

I hold on tight
This tiny raft
Upon the raucous
Seething froth
Ride the fury
Through the pass
All the while
Seek inward poise

For only then
Will ire abate
The rapid’s run
Is fueled by hate
While narrow walls
Are blinders worn
To keep my mind
In raging state
