What are rivers

Rivers


If it is just about water
I could answer the question
the floating and rapid
growth of pools after rain
or the mud that blackens the hull
as we pull to the shore

rivers, however, are usually
sandy bottomed, silt lined,
filled with random fish.

It is the stories a river tells
between the banks
river bends, sand bars
the occasional sunken log
boys jumping to swim
merchandise going to market

water crossed by a bridge, take sides
now,
the river becomes political.

Yes, the river runs just like life, deep, mysterious, teeming with interesting characters and the unknown is just around the bend.
