For Peggy Christie


Work upstream against the current
turn around for the thrill of a swift ride
plod up a hill dragging a sled behind
for that wind streaming, screaming ride
hard work will be rewarded
process is important
struggle makes us stronger
makes us appreciate a piece of pie

  1. Beautiful poem, Diane. I have memories of paddling a canoe upsteam. Not fun but rewarding.
