River Process

The River Almond and Naismith Bridge in Almond...
You rush over me

Like a fast-moving river

Smoothing the rough edges

On the hard stones

Making them soft and touchable.

Yet I'm afraid you will simply wash over me

And move on downstream, not reversing your course

Or dissolve me before you travel on.

Slow down, river, let's find a pool

For deer to drink from

And fish to swim in before

This happy process is complete.
