Water Rising


Water rising

life came to a screeching halt

how to solve an issue

experience can’t be bought


Water rising quickly

ducks and geese swim by

life looks easy for them

keep wondering why


A boat comes by

asking if I need a ride

stubborn in my endevour

I say no with pride


Water rising with rapids

now in over my head

still thinking I have all the answers

beginning to tread



calling out to whoever will listen

deep issue to be solved

something in the water begins to glisten


Gleaning from 

others traveling the same path

rapids begin to recede

issue has lost its wrath


Water receding

community works with me

the issue being solved

loving each other is the key
