Succinct: Floating Down the River

pelahatchie bay river 1 april 12

Paddling down the river

the channel is wide

following a succinct course

avoiding obstacles on the outside

 

Floating down the river

an alligator swims along

slowly observing me

deciding to go on

 

Farther down river

a blue heron on the bank

taking in the sun

sitting on a bucket that sank

 

Close to the dam now

can hear the water roar

churning through the gates

watching the birds soar

 

Fish jumping in the water

fishermen with wood poles

birds following them

dinner is the goal

 

Returning home now

the sun is going down

silence along the river

serenity abound
