River of life

Take into your liquid embrace

The soul of purest fire

Temper in your swift currents

The flame of pure desire

 

Wash away the sins of hate

In your churning foam

Cradle the fractured heart

Amongst your smooth white stones

 

Soothe the burns of the past

With rapid rushing waves

Take the elixir of life

And scour away the pain

 

Erode the banks of anger

With your winding course

And sing to the floundering ones

Who wait upon your shores

My Thoughts While I Eat My Pie.

By Aarron Mondello

I wrote this little one a few weeks ago when I was away from home and missing my special lady. 

Sitting by the beach
Eating a hot pie
Staring out to sea
Where the ocean meets the sky
A small bird flying fast
Across the ocean blue
A fishing line is cast
And I think of you
Ripples on the surface
As the gentle breeze blows
Speed boat coming near us
Gradually it slows
By my side another car
Next to that another few
Today you feel so far
So I only think of you
And here a single man
Walking along barefoot
Slowly up the sand
While a lady reads her book
Two friends siting near
Discussing what to do
I’m close to enough hear
Yet I only think of you
Yellow buoys bobbing
Someone freestyle swimming
And my mind is throbbing
With thoughts of you this evening
