Far and Away

by Gracy Judith   Dec 22, 2020

And here we are
coursing upstream
the river of life
timing our paddle-strokes and turns
into inscrutable tomorrows—

the future is a cipher
the ebb and flow of life, the key
And yet we find ourselves adrift
settling everywhere else
but where we should

    In these uncertain times, it's writes like this that bring home the calamity of our situation. The metaphor of white water rafting is a good one. None of us wants to drown and we certainly didn't volunteer for certain death, but that's what many of us ultimately fear. I like your format too, it enables certain words to be highlighted, like: 'tomorrows dreams'. Nicely done. I do like a clever poet who likes to display their message uniquely.

    Take care.
