Nature's Improv

So placid, its harmonious fluidity;
it seems almost still in the morning haze,
but an eddy near the shoreline  
betrays its movement.
Leaves glance and lazily spin
until their pace quickens
as the stream rolls like a silk blouse
over smooth stones.
Around the bend
a more busy visage marks its pace
as it washes a branch from the shore
and tosses it in a cascade of white
where the mist is caught in spectrums of light.
Away from the falls the same fickle flow
once again lazily slips into a sleepy pond
where the haze from a distant campfire
drifts low.

    I like it Deb--be back cuz you said wee and the capcha was 9pp--okay check it out in present tense

    fav line [as the stream rolled like a silk blouse/over smooth stones.] and I too like using a bit of rhyme in free verse for 'punctuation' as you have at the end. If I might make a wee suggestion to try? Try putting it in present tense? Light & Love
