A Prickle Kayak Ride




Kayaking this afternoon

a calm river ride

calmness and serenity

nature by my side


Flowing along through life

searching the river bend

being one with nature

not wanting it to end


Not paying attention

dreaming in the sun

there is a prickle on my skin

the river is beginning to run


The rapids come all of the sudden

white rushing water in this race

there is turmoil all around

the thrill a prickle to my face


Rushing through the rapids

afraid I might turn over

trying to steer with my paddle

water is a spillover


Through the rapids

calm waters have returned

back to calmness and serenity

now well earned

  1. As with everything in life, it all depends on whether you feel the need to yell, “AAAGGGGGGHHH!!!! ” or “Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew!” Nice post. Thanks for always finding the “Whew!” in life.
