By the Water

by Janis Gaines

I find myself by the water
Writing it all down
Fast and furious
With reckless abandon
And careless upward sprays
The motion is endless
And I am tapped in
To the endless flow
Life rolls over me
Easily from rock to rock
With such grand adventure
That the seekers must
Stop and stare
And pull out their compasses
To see if it’s true
That the North Star is here

I want to ride the current
All afternoon
First smooth and steady
And then with perfect passion
As the Creator takes over
And has his way with me
