River Of Light

River Of Light by Nicola G. Karesh

A golden river of light meanders through my soul.
It ripples as it flows,
Flooding the banks of my mind.
Washing away the darkest corners,
Fears and confusion clinging to the walls.
The rising waters cool the impulsive child
Desperate to act without the wisdom of her heart.
Beating ever so softly.
Beating, ever so gently.
In time with the rhythm of eternity.

  1. Wow – are you ever experiencing something. I tweeted this on twitter. Thank you for writing this and thank you for posting. The picture is beautiful but the words are exquisite. Thank you . . ./John

  2. Nicola, I came across your “river” image and wonderful poem while searching through google images for a fitting graphic to complement my small, new community chorus’ upcoming program called “my soul is a river”.
    Is it possible to copy this image with your name for the cover of our program?

    Thank you for such beauty.

    • You are welcome Barb! I updated the post to include the links at the end for myself and the photographer. Her name is Jenny Downing and you can find her on flickr. She is quite amenable to people using her photos. Her simple requirement, is that you let her know what you are doing with it. Please let her know where you found her photo ‘liquid gold.’ That will be nice for me! 🙂
      The direct link to that particular photo, is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenny-pics/2677459862/
