the current

Still waters, it is said—

Run deep.

Even when the surface is quiet and uneventful —

We are assured there exists — at some greater depth —

The current.

The current is now.

The active, ever-present, and wow —


I am reminded in writing this to seek the current in the moments I am given.

To get in — and stay in —

Especially when it’s over my head.

Especially when I want to resist.

Especially when I’m not sure where I’m going to —

End up.

Because the current is living —

The verb of life.

And, it is in the current — that all things flow naturally —

But not necessarily, smoothly —

To where they belong.
