ROARING

An irrepressible deep river roared

under a smooth surface.

The water parts are filled from

rain and streams

and the undergrowth

The high banks lay evidence to the force

Of soil breaking.

Trees bend.  Rocks tilt.

All parts yielding to the waters

grasp and flow.

A lean subtle confident power

pushes on like silent distant planets.

The river has the flavor of ages.

The respect of mountains

as it rolls into the ocean.
