The River and I

Standing in a river
Cold water rushing along my legs
Looking up at a perfect blue sky
On the shore
Trees, tall
Look to deeper water where fish
Go by
Oblivious to me
Or anything else
Except themselves and the water around them
I decide to join them
Dive into the deeper water. Current carries me
I don’t swim
Am carried
No worries of drowning
Grab a rock and climb on
Watching the water
Sun dries me then threatens to burn
Back in the water
Fish pass me
I pass them
Finally swim to shore
Sit in on the sand
A fallen branch in my hand
River: you are so totally
I’m just being me
So natural this time
I am not invading nature
One with it
I leave
No trace
