A Metaphor

Beginnings,
endings
flow as a stream
We are the stream;
moved by the current
to small still ponds
basking in warm sunlight
Winds will come
rippling water urging
us back out
into the stream,
moving quickly
spirals of  turbulence
leading us to
large open water
aimlessly adrift
Waves will come
in torrents
pushing us back
to sandy shores
in refuge
after being carried
for so long
and so far,
wading there in
stagnant water
till the next current
comes to move
us along
always moving us
along
