...And a river ran through it

the last time she went rafting,
she went over a 14 foot waterfall,
screaming just a little and
mostly out of sheer excitement
for what lay ahead.

and perhaps it was also that
way with matters of the heart, she mused.

you decide to head downstream,
happily "going with the flow" --
sometimes there are 5+ rapids (such fun!)
and sometimes tricky waterfalls.

they both propel you forward --
and, if you're lucky, you can find yourself in arms
strong enough to carry you through the rough patches,

making the ride all the
more surprising and delicious.
