Assimilate: A Rapid Ride


Rushing through the river

with a big smile

assimilating with the rapids

having gone a mile


Oh such power

taking it all in

such exhilaration

combination of water and wind


A waterfall is near

can hear the rushing sound

being part of all of this

makes my heart bound


Over the falls

such a rush

totally consumed in rapids

water making a fuss


Calmer now

the ride is almost over

storm brewing on the horizon

time to take cover


Assimilating into nature

fun to heed the call

feeling power within me

wanting to take it all


Time to call it day

rain is coming down

quietly meditating

on the way to town
