The river sings of its rocks, mirrors
emerald and jade where summer
shadows attempt to outrun
sundown. I intrude, I presume.

I stand near the middle. The second cut
of hay is on the banks, neatly ordered
in rows this time of year, golden,
measuring the march-step toward August.

I think about changes: the movement
of sand through narrow places, how
a ripple diminishes downstream,
how a sound sounds when it stops.

  1. I really enjoyed those words Ron.I love water,streams,rivers.I like to watch the movement and to just wonder and dream,think Im turning into a bit of a dreamer 🙂

  2. A thinking person’s setting and thoughts for a long moment. I could identify with the second cutting of hay but the sound of sound stopping had me think a bunch.

    Thank you for peeking in on my OSI. Again, here, I am sorry to be so very late in returning.
