Waterfall Course

and downwards,
ledge to edge,
cascading over
stones of old,
the coursing waters
school us well:
be effervescent;
clear, don't dwell;
remain near friends
with gravity,
which speeds us
so we'd see
we cannot cease
but all must move
within this moment,
in this groove,
let go, and flow
in nature's way,
with freedom
nothing can delay,
without a moment
to be lost
by the fires
or the frost,
and not one purpose
to ignore -
as this is what
this life is for:
until the end,
embracing newness
with each bend,
running headfirst
toward the chance
to surpass
or just advance,
and never once
forget to dance.
