The Tumbling

Life is so much like this picture
We are smoothly going along and all seems well
And suddenly we are falling precipitously
We run into a rock and that propels us onto another one
We are tumbling this way and that
Feeling like we must be breaking every bone in our body
Then another rapid descent
And a churning, churning, churning
Then there is rest again
And we see that when we conform like the Water
And we become like the Water
We come through not bruised and battered
But cleaner, purer and more wondrous than before
Life is so much like this picture
