A favourite poem....

“Where Rivers May Meet” by David Whyte (from River Flow)

All the water below me came from above

All the clouds living in the mountains

Gave it to the rivers,

Who gave it to the sea, which was their dying

And so I float on cloud become water,

Central sea surrounded by white mountains,

The water salt, once fresh,

Cloud fall and stream rush, tree root

And tide bank

Leading to the rivers mouths

And the mouths of the rivers sing into the sea,

The stories buried in the mountain

Give out into the sea

And the sea remembers

And sings back, from the depths

Where nothing is forgotten
