Learn to read the river.

Watch the double back
Downstream of the boulder.
See the green glassy waves.
Be the river swell; then exhale.

Align yourself along the seams
Of the transient currents
Roiled in the narrowing canyon.

Two paddle strokes,
River water in your veins.

The sun sets, orange and bright,
And water like time flows downstream.

Campfire memories on riverside beaches,
Shooting stars, whiskey, and dreams.
