the boy child riding the currents
seeks out rapids
rests impatiently in the eddies
paddles strong broad strokes
splashes the water with joy & falls for the fun of it.
the boy child wonders at the awe of the morning wind
blowing west hard
streaming through unkempt hair
cleansing heart, soul and mind
as sunlight diamond dances the water top
piecing the eye demanding vision cleansing.
the boy child quiets to listen to the crashing water flow
the smell of water spray
torrents of whitewater change
& the memories of kananaskis, king creek, wedge pond, canyons ...
