Rio Frio

The Rio Frio

We travel here religiously
(‘bout 4 or 5 years now, yearly)
to dip our backsides
and yelp with surprise
as the cold, crystal-clear liquid
envelopes our warm skin.
Rocks as old as the beginning of time
shine up from down below
as our tubes glide over
each glistening ripple.
It begs us to dip again,
tomorrow, yearly.
There’s a healing in these waters
that land just can’t give balm.
