Rhythmic ease

“In the early hours of the morning, I awoke to an unfamiliar stillness and proceeded to the bank of the river where in the sleepy distance, I saw graceful silhouettes gliding towards the shore. The figures were of the village fishermen who, having filled their daily quota, lingered to the rhythmic ease of the current before returning to rough soil.”
