By the river

By the river

A Poem by deepblue04

I've been in my room for a few hours,

it's time for me to get out!

 

Where could I go?

Library?

Computer lab?

The Student Success Center?

The Student Union Building?

The cafeteria?

 

To tell you the truth I didn't decide any of those places

The library was closed

I didn't want to surf the internet

The Student Success Center was closed

The Student Union Building was also closed

And it was around 5 pm...

I didn't feel like eating

 

However, I did remember

that there was a river in my campus

and there was a little dock that I could go sit on

 

So I brought my mp3 and my homework to work on

and I went to Starbucks for a drink

 

Sitting on the dock was one of the most peaceful places to be

for me anyways

I was able to focus

and the music help set such a good mood to work on

 

I was able to get what I wanted done

and relax by the river

seeing the ripples in the water

seeing the wildlife interact with each other

 

I was in peace

I used to spend lots of time by my river; it was a healing spot, a perfect classroom to learn true values. I like the implication in your poem that something was drawing you to the river. Nice write.

Maybe your realm of control is water, this was interesting and energetic to read.

Whether it be prose or poetry, it's simple and relatable. I've got a river practically in my back yard, and they're great for getting some peaceful inspiration. Great write.


Carry on!

Nice way to put the words of life into a way of dream

Best place to be. A flowing river. Give you quiet and allowed the mind to relax. I like the thoughts and the very nice ending. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

More of prose than poetry to me...

Your poem is very expressive, speaking of finding your 'place'. I would enjoy it as a short story also.
