A Poem by Keila Aartila

The Pull of Water

I am fascinated by wild water,

the great power of it’s rhythmical sound,

yet remain terrified that I might drown.

***

My dreams float colorful on the current,

carried to generations yet unfound.

I am fascinated by wild water.

***

From the shore, my limited time is spent

on this relentless course to which I’m bound,

yet remain terrified that I might drown.

***

To it’s glorious nature, rivers bent,

new paths carved steadily through untamed ground.

I am fascinated by wild water.

***

Forever flowing fresh, never stagnant;

by magic moonlight, I am safely crowned,

yet remain terrified that I might drown

***

under the weight of wishes sent

to journey upon gentle waves profound.

I am fascinated by wild water

yet remain terrified that I might drown.
