Trekking back roads along the river brings peace in spirit with connections to Nature.
Trekking down the river road;
Black-eye-Susans and Queen Anne's Lace,
Field colors of white and gold.
Pondering, traveling at a lazy pace.
Water breezes and calliope tunes;
Paddle-wheel stories make moments bright,
Winged songs with colored plumes.
Sun's thoughts become river's fractured light.
Dreaming around the river bend;
Recollections of midnight mysteries,
Evening sounds, crickets and tree frogs send.
Lunar glimpses are river's possibilities.
Dawn's smokey-blue ribbon paves the day;
Continuing on down the river road,
Tireless, fearless footprints along the way.
Jaunty steps onward, journeys told.
