Racing the River
By Lesley Debacco
I race against the flowing water,
Mother Nature’s mysterious daughter.
Gentle ripples but dangers curves,
Can make the bravest person lose their nerve.
Running along the river,
Gives a strange feeling…a shiver.
The river flows with truth that many overlook.
Others ignore the calling of the brook.
So as I race against the river wide,
I know I can always challenge the water and its tide.
Darting among the rapids white.
The race gets tight.
As I reach the cascade and the water falls,
The race ends for now until…once again the river calls.
