The Alluring River

The river looks calm and inviting,
a natural gift of beauty.
Waterfowl inhabit to feed and nest.
A gateway shared by creatures,
dangers hidden beneath.
The river is beautifully calm and serene,
its powerful dangers are often unseen.
Currents can swirl hidden from shore,
tragically become be a drowning door.
A natural resource to respect and admire,
a gift of nature that will never expire.
Unique with brackish water properties too,
with legends of sea creatures venturing through.
a white egret soars
diving into spawning fish ~
a river regale

Wow, Tania, these are nice river poems, and each a different form. They are all woven together nicely. I like "a gift of nature that will never expire."

A river is rather moody. A lot of times it takes other elements to stir it up. I love nature. Thanks for writing this! It has excellent flow. ~Peace, Angie
