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.
