Reaching destiny

Poem for writers island


Lake Wanaka
Reaching destiny
By marja

I can foretell, my friend
that he will reach his destiny
 he who silently stands strong
  strong like a graceful tree
firmly rooted all year long
 
He who blossoms
more beautifully
after going through each season
maturing with each cycle
Living live for a reason

As he paints the canvas of live
with ripples of deep blue
 streaks of green and gold
 with white light shining through
you see the magic unfold.

The path he treads is rough
but iridescence bubbles of joy
distracting him from pain you see
therefore I foretell  my friend
that he will reach his destiny

  16. Your words are as imaginative and refreshing as the lake scene in your photograph, Marja. I’ve been hearing about the earthquake in New Zealand. I live in an earthquake prone area and always take special note when I hear of such disasters. How does one ever prepare? I can only hope that you are well!
