Let the River Do the Work

Updated: Dec 10, 2019

Drifting today, as we drift every day Feathers riding the surface tension of water We swirl in the eddies and slip under branches Stare at the sky as we turn this way and that Waiting to see what happens next Just drifting

Floating today, as we float every day Listening for the roar of the rapids, wondering If the quickening water will usher us Through a high-walled canyon to the river beyond Or spin us dizzy and breathless, and under again Just floating

Swimming today, as we swim every day Kicking with tired thighs through churned up water It's quieter underneath but you can't hear the birds Drift, float, let the river do the work There is more to see around the bend If you keep swimming
