anadromous urges

Russian River steelhead jumping2

from tides and oceans of life
waves of urges return
to glee pall mall and thrash and zoom
upstream back to where it all begins.

to pass on wild leaping life again
through rivers, creeks and streams,
flying up waterfalls in gleams
to spawn and cease to be.

(to all those steelhead, salmon, sturgeon, shad and the little whisps that come back of what we are)
