The waters stream

The waters streaming

The water flows out

The water flows

The sound of birds, the sound of air blowing

The water flows

The light peaking out of and over the horizon

The colors starting to come to life

The water flows

The clouds engulf the colors

The splashes of jumping fish around you

The eagle and osprey diving into the water for their morning breakfast

The water flows

The light breaks free from the water’s edge grasp

The swirling of the air changes direction

The water flows

The rhythm of the day begins

The rhythm of the music is perfect for the moment

The water flows

The moment calls for silence

The silence calls for attention

The attention calls for a deep breath

You’re breathing

The water flows

You’re holding back the tears

You’re fighting it, but no matter hard you try they just stream

The water flows.

Thank you and see you at the next post.


Author: The Ordinary Compass

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
