there is that current you go willingly with
or it takes you anyway in riffs and rips
better to slide into it than fight,
drowning in crocodile rolls
hard to teach that flow
but when we learn it
easier to skim,
to float that surface pull.
it only takes you under
if you fight
the dead surrender
much more easily
than the live
but we can learn it

So true, it is easier once you learn to go with the flow than to constantly fight the current. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Morgan. Took me a long time to learn this one!
Especially liking that last line.
Thanks, Holly. My version of “going with the flow…”
Go with the flow… to a point. 🙂
Insightful and very well expressed!
THank you, Madeline!
Acceptance is the key
Yes, it is. It can be learned, but difficult to teach.
Surely we can learn …
Oh yes, yes we can. We either learn or struggle.
Thanking you again…
