In the whitewater world, together

In the whitewater,

we are together.

Navigating the currents

resurfacing awash at times

and high and dry at others.

Every jolt is a chance

to pause and assess,

all that is on the surface

and all hidden under –

a lifelong quest to

coast to calm waters.


Sensing back to years,

carefree and buoyant.

World was our oyster

and decisions in front

I share the excitement,

concern and cause to

step into it all….


And again, sensing forward

in mid-stream, burdened

and yet hopeful after all.

One too many waterfalls,

yet to conquer, tide across

I hold the curiosity and hope, 

let’s make it our call…
