White water rider

Calm waters
Surrounded by friends
Life vest on
Paddle ready
Excitement in the air
Questions of who is first
To swim with the fishes

Short journey
Calm water now raging
Paddles working fast in unison
Being propelled forward
Water topped in white
Mountainous obstacles to overcome
Down for a face of water
No time to clear vision
Paddles move quicker
Back up for a view
Like a roller coaster
A life time at the top
A half second to bottom

Hill after hill
Mountain after mountain
River widens slowly
Rage turns back to calm
Look about and everyone still on
No face without a smile
Not a hair close to dry

Adrenaline rush subsides
Just in time for another ride
Ups and downs abound
So much fun found
