Be Like Water, My Friend - Hypnotic Induction

Poem By Elena V. Moonray

'Be like water, my friend, be like water,
Don’t be rigid; just go with a flow...'
'Be like water' - you asked me. 'Don't hold to me.
I am leaving, so please let me go.'

'Water is shapeless, my friend, water is flowing
Water is moving; and it cannot die...
It may freeze sometimes, when it gets too cold,
But you know, the spring will arrive.'

***
I’m becoming shapeless, I’m becoming fluid,
I am listening to what you say...
I got frozen, my friend, by your sudden coldness
But I’m finding through cracks my new way.

***
Now I am floating, again. I am glowing.
I’m reflecting the sun and the sky...
And sometimes the clouds. And the wind is blowing...

I’m already far away...Just stopped to wave 'Good Bye! '

a different side to water....i liked it...do read my poem Emotions...it's about water too....a bit...just a different side of the same coin I guess yours is more readable and more often true and much more important to learn! ! LuV VidZ
The piece has a nice progression. It moves well.
I enjoyed this poem with its sustained metaphor and pleasing rhymes. Good write

Fear Of Thunderstorms

I am afraid of thunderstorms and can’t look at the lightening
And am avoiding being in thunderstorms all my life
And hide under the table when it catches me off guard
So that I won’t see all these scary blue lights

Give Me Your Paw, So I Would Have Good Luck! ('To Kachalov’s* Dog' - Free Style Translation From S. Esenin)

Hey, give me your paw, so I would have good luck!
I have not seen a paw like that for ages
Lets sit together quietly and bark,
Bark at the moon at stillness of the night
