Obstacles

 So, what do you do when there’s a boulder in your way

You make like a river and you flow

If you can’t move it, nor go through it

You course around it, surround it

Dash, splash against it

Joyfully wash it

Never give up

Just make like a river and flow

Little by little, over time

Here and there you’ll interrupt it

As your gentle touch shapes that boulder

It begins to agree with you

Bearing the artistry of your swirls and curves

It responds to your touch

Your obstacle has become a sculpture

At one with the river

Masterfully Crafted River Sculpture
