Never Still


Delaware River at Red Bank Battlefield, National Park, NJ.–November

Never Still


undisturbed, flows

into the future. Here.

Now. It carries goods and dreamers—



Another Crapsey Cinquain for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday prompt, using synonyms for calm and present.

  1. Thank you for another wise and beautiful poem. I sometimes stop and gaze at a small urban stream on my way to leading Music Together classes. I remind myself to be like the stream and simply flow… Hurrah for streams and rivers and water in general!
