        Against the Flow

The river water ripples west
Away from higher hillside’s crest,
The wind descends through carved ravines
And slices more than has the means
To use collapsing soil and bark
That slide away into the dark.

Above, an arrow point of geese
Fly east announcing, “Do not cease!
The heavy wind is just as fair
Beneath the wing as lighter air,
Below, behind, despite what’s dead,
There’s something special up ahead!”

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
