Creek, River, Ocean

Tiny rivulets of chaos 
converge in the rocky creek 
of my discontent. 
Confusion tumbles 
down the canyon,
coursing into a torrent
that batters the banks
in fury and flood,
until at the canyon’s mouth, 
waters spread and slow,
depositing debris and mud.
Turbulence spent, 
I reach broad plains 
of  patience, penitence, 
meander clear  miles, 
water tranquil fields.
Finally, peace, broad and deep
flows into the boundless
ocean of His love.
