One With The River
The expectations of the day rising like the sun
Paddling with the current, every which way
Like a smooth bamboo shark;
Amongst the oyster beds
And mangrove trees.
The sun illuminating my adventure
Warming my exposed skin
Engrossed with excitement;
As we reach our favorite island.
Crabs scurrying to their sand homes
Catch a glimpse of the flying fish,
Wave goodbye to the manatees,
And to an oh so peaceful voyage.
