Mist Rises

Rain swollen river

Threatens to breach the banks

Mist rises

From newly aggressive rapids

That seek attention

With their ominous roar

If you dared to enter

They would consume you

Feed you to the rocks

All the while

The trees watch on

Unmoved by the insolence of the water

Simply enjoying the extra nutrients

Through all the seeming chaos

Harmony is clear

When you look at the whole
