Looking into the depths

looking into the depths
of the water
reflections rippling
in the sun
I stare, mesmerized
recalling times
long since gone

days of childhood
when freedom was mine
carefree and innocent
with time
to wander riverbanks
in safety
with friends or alone
to laugh, run and hide
ah…such wonderful times

but where are they now
for the young of today
where can they go
with safety
but stay in front of
computers and games
sheltered away
hidden
imprisoned
as society fails

Artist's Description

I love rivers and I am totally mesmerized by reflections in water…or anywhere. And when I watch the water my thoughts and reflections usually follow a particular path or theme, with peace and tranquility and creation at the core.

But this time, this day, my thoughts went in a totally different direction.
