WHITE WATER

By Lisa Huddleston

6a00e55031d3a38834013487aefb3b970cTonight as I lay in bed

I fell

Out of a raft

Into white water.

Pick your feet up and float.

I remembered:

Don’t fight it;

Trying to stand

Will only catch your feet

In the rocks.

Let go, and

Float.

The current will carry you

To stiller waters

Where surely you can

Climb in or be lifted up

Into the raft.

And gentler waves will lull you back to sleep.
