Little Pigeon River

	Little Pigeon River
	
	
	Little Pigeon River’s 
	water lullaby, 
	the flow’s soft percussion 
	against mossy green 
	rounded river rocks,
	multi-layered, 
	contrapuntal,
	a faint hiss,
	tiny scrapings 
	as small stones 
	are settled into place 
	by the cold current,
	my eyes heavy, 
	sleep waiting nearby.

    Very serene, I have a water feature outside my window and the sound of the water falling on the rocks is very soothing. I too love the ocean, we live close to lake Okanagan and it surfices as a surrogate ocean.

    You're very fortunate. I live in the middle of a very hot and dry place (Oklahoma). I liked the river so much I'm considering buying a "sound machine" for the bedroom. Thanks for commenting... Jack

    Whenever I find it hard to sleep, I imagine myself at the beach, surround with the sound of the waves. I am sure your beautiful melody will work just as well. Great write, Jack... David

    Thanks for your reply, David. The river sound was better than a sedative. Like you, the ocean has a similar effect for me... Jack
