The Shift - Ayla Diamond (Poetry)

Updated: Sep 20, 2018

This poem by Ayla Diamond is a reflective piece written on a river's shore during one of her many adventures within nature. It considers how rivers are always changing like we are, and how it is so beautiful to recognize the growth within one another.

You are a river

A steady cascade

of flowing waters,

The change that made

once rough stones, smooth.

You are the rejuvination

the shore needed

to now bloom again.

You are the reason I am

carried away
