When You Feel Sadness, Walk Away From It Do not look at sparkling waters
and do not stir them in your melancholy
because that could spoil them

resting and hugging a stone cliff
on this sunny day
silence drowns in the green river

your soul and the waves reach for each other
your thoughts wistfully wander
while overlooking the faint rip in the river

sitting on a rock above the river
adorned as a bride in white
the humble view is propped up
on her murmur
absent from this moment
where the river reveals your dilemma

look around you, today
listen to the river's song
It speaks of birds and stone realize how lucky you are
it tells you its secret. © 10/2021 Artwork by Poet, Ibrahim Honjo
