Tribute to Tributaries

Move like a snail
Appear as a Late Blooming flower
steady, persistent
Yet flexible, flowing with everyday shifts

Sometimes slow
   Sometimes appears off course.

At times

Other times
  rapidly swirling
  whipping up eddies
   overflowing banks

Heads to same world ocean.

Ready to be scooped up by clouds
    carried and redispersed.

Like those days at the amusement park
   round and round
   ride the rides,
then get back in a winding line
to go again.
