river of darkness
where light touches
caresses the surface
never reaching
the place within

river of fog
bright bitter breezes blow
stir the mists
dance across
yet the fog remains

river of silence
where warmth at the center
brings peace within
yet only the bravest
chance the peace of the ride

river of frozen
deep there is beneath
the abundant life without
separated by rock hard coldness
from the tender life below

river of diamonds
sparkle and dance
too happy and bright
nothing left
of the peaceful night
