Random Poem:

Eyewitness
albeej

The slow, murky, drought-affected river
 1
Snakes its way around meandering shores.
 2
Its surface littered with leaves upriver
 3
Like colorful scales on a constrictor.
 4
Within its gut swim impervious prey
 5
That nourishes it along its lengthy
 6
Journey to the sea. All along the way
 7
Its subtle currents swallow whole, debris
 8
Left in the wake of December’s fury.
 9
Unmindful Canada geese fly over
 10
The leafy surface honking their carefree
 11
Calls while negotiating their stopover.
 12
Standing high on the bank is I, witness
 13
To this winter picturesque loveliness.
