Nice to end on a very born again and again pagan song about the nature of life and death, metamorphoses.  


Rivers Run
©Roman Rhodes, 2006

Rivers run down mountains.
Rivers run to the sea.
Run in evaporation
And in clouds above you & me.
Rivers run in rain
And run in rivers again.
And spirits run like rivers run
In streams of constant change.

Spirits run in bodies,
In breath and word and names.
Spirits run in families
In strands of D.N.A.
In animals, rocks & trees;
in smiles & laughter.
And gods run like sprits run:
In everything and ever-after.

Gods run in histories,
In emotions and ideas.
And Gods run in energies
Like winds through oak leaves;
Like strings of electricity;
Like currents in your brain.
And rivers run like gods run:
Through elements like rain.


Rivers down mountains.
Spirits run to the sea.
Gods run in evaporation
all around you & me.
They run in rain.
And run in rivers again.
And everything is eternal
:Only external forms change.:
