Poetry

The Rushing River

There is no reason for rushing ever

Just as the river never does

Because despite what is said

The river just flows

Sometimes slow and languid

Through long smooth stretches

And at others quick or fast

As a riffle or rapid

But the river does not rush

And the water is never in a hurry to get somewhere

It is not already
