Nooksack River

Nooksack River

Ceaseless rush
old river
ageless and tireless artisan
reshaping the shoreline with swift currents.

Keeper of the secrets of creation
flowing across
vast expanses of sweeping time
not moored to any place
not tethered to any
particular circumstance.

Water is your substance,
earth your dominion
deep verdant valleys your brethren,
beholden to no one
gravity your only master.

Old river
forever bound for open water
under expansive sky and sun,
journey never complete.
