Water Flow

Water Flow Immense cascading waterfalls, deafening sound Strong whirlpool beneath, mist swirling around The torrent river below, flowing violently, so swift Within it’s wake, carrying within it, all that floats adrift Erosion of once fortified river bank, rocks and trees Force of the ebb, constantly changing angle and degrees Rapid flowing river, seeing the white caps within it’s wake Enveloping all that the waterfalls can give and forsake Further down the river, her strength and fury subsides a bit Ever flowing, a new destination, her quest never submits Turns into a long lazy river, flowing through valleys and plains Flowing throughout all seasons, whatever all weather contains The river meets the mighty lake, takes all she can pour in And replenishes all the water that has evaporated within This steady cycle ensures the survival of many things Clean water is essential, giving the life blood it brings

G'day Charlie … rivers and creeks belong to the circle of life and very little can survive without them. I enjoyed your verse with the changes that occur on the river's journey - thank you Charlie - Lindsay

Hello Charlie Baker, so nice to meet you. I like the water. A waterfall is beautiful to see. When the sun shines upon a waterfall a rainbow will appear. Rapids water is a calming sound. Listening to the waves is calming. The sound of water is calming. Have a nice day my friend.
