River Ritual by Frederick K. Foote

Snow capped rocks

Slender evergreens

Rowdy winds frisk
waving short limbs

Ice crystals jailbreak
to eager drops of
water famished
for downhill racing

A liberated trickle of
miniature waterfalls
merging into creeks
twisting into rivers

An ancient
American
sacrament
flowing to
the sea
