On Life by the River

To the shy hamlet vivid are the hardships of last year, How the brazen river had surged in—ravishing, moulding, Branding beyond repair. And yet, when the summer air hums In the hush before rain, once again, on the crumbling fields Rancid memories give way to emerald reveries. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Date: 24 / 11 / 2016

The meaning of it all that its mobility exudes life, the moment it becomes stagnant heralds its death. A superb quill
