River Haiku

                                       


                                                         

















                                         River's  arduous  journey since birth,
                                     facing hurdles aplenty,flows up and down
                                           mingles in mother ocean's lap.


                                            

                                              River crosses all hurdles
                                       The goal is far,Move on, move on
                                              to rest in your love's arms.

  2. "River crosses all hurdles" Right you are! There aren't many things that can stop a river.

  4. Two very different looks at the river flow - the first very philosophical, second nicely romantic! Well done.

  6. Arduous journey for sure. We visited several glaciers in Canada that fed rivers leading to four bodies of water, Arctic, Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific.
