Yesterday, our wanderings led us to Waterloo State Park, just south of Lebanon, Oregon. Which suited me fine as I am a “water creature”.
At first I was a little concerned, though; we made our way to the river and it was this sedate green ribbon with fishermen (and osprays) fishing – not the roaring river of my memory.
But we followed the bank trail upstream, which became rockier and started including boulders. and soon we cam to the river of my memory; white water being churned as it made its various trails through obstacles of rocky formations. It was awe-inspiring … and worthy of a poem.
Today’s prompt is “rocks and rapids”

I’ve made it easy for you. You can find them in my archive on my Poetry Prompts page.
I identify myself as a Pacific Northwest poet. I have been writing poetry since 1976- and yes - I have been using the pen-name Ariel all this time! I can often be found writing in the Willamette Valley, in Pacific forests or along the Coastlines on Oregon.
