Paddle paused, the kayak continues
drifting upstream, the mild current
offering little resistance. The wake
continues towards shore, calmer
in its own wake, until rippled
reflections become serene,
the kayak still, and the waves
only a memory.
This is my response to Poetics: Impermanence —
the prompt from Merril at dVerse Poets Pub.
