medication for side effects

Rapids rush downstream, much as a life
Does.
Fleeting and flowing at each different
Turn.Rogue River from near Inspiration Point

Neither fleet nor flow pauses much
Except
When it gets caught in the boundaried edges of
Channel
And shore.
There, it swarms in eddies of swirl and
Even
Backwards currents.
No longer — for the moment —
Hurling
And hurtling
Itself towards its own rapid
End.

The experienced guide knows these eddies as a
True
Friend
And seeks them out
Whenever trouble or delight cross the
Ravine,
Giving the invitation to
Wait and
Watch.

Composed in honor of Kayla, Neil and my dear niece, Lenore, who so capably guided us over the rapids of the Rogue River (Oregon, USA), August 11-15, 2012. Kudos and gratitude.
