Singing with the murmuring of water
Dancing with the waves in a desultory fashion
Playing with  the wind as it moves on
In love with solitude, life is lively.

Idleness they call it. Wise morons
Running to catch the time, wayfarer
Time shall not be triumphant with me
I watch my reflection in the water,
Stirred, shaken, lost.

  3. There really is so much to be learned through looking at reflections! Perhaps there is no more greater learning than what is reflected back! Happy New Year to you.
