Rushing river

Rushing river, Just above Lower Purgatory Falls, Mont Vernon, NH, January 2006, HP Photosmart R817, Exposure 818/2069 sec @ f2.8, ISO 100, no flash © Steven Crisp

The snow is fresh and clean
Nature's way of covering our tracks
and telling us we are the only ones
that have ever taken this walk.

The water rushes
as it always does, never ending
looking the same,
yet always different.

Just as we are
somehow the same
but you understand --
always different still.

One vista glimped
one conversation heard
one idea contemplated
one moment of solitude

Each can make a dramatic difference in our lives.
And yet we look the same to the outer world.
But they too will see the change
if they look deep enough

If they really listen.
Can you hear the water rushing by?
It is the same,
but always different.
