My Love for a River
It’s my river, the only river I know
I live here by it…
I lived through all seasons in this spot for a while
I love to photograph my river
no matter what season,
no matter what time of the day (see pictures)
It’s a river that carries love around
People keep cleaning it
after bad storms, we go out
to make sure the water is running and
not much debris is in our way when on the boat
or pedaling on the canoes will be fine…
we love the water in summer when
you can put your feet in and reach
the sand bars to set your tent
and bring that camp fire to a
spectacular being at night
it’s dark, the stars sparkle on the sky
it’s a multitude of them, millions
and, yes, the sky is a spectacular view
who wants to go to sleep anymore?
It’s quiet in the middle of the river,
you can hear only the waves of a cloud…
you might sense a little (water) night life around
there are some geese flying and fish…
but wait, it’s another boat,
people still fishing
they carry a big lantern
they laugh, it’s fun!
Fall comes around with beautiful color
stunning view in the sunset
lit up lights of wonders
then that familiar sound …
a rustling sound of leaves dying
you just want to sit, watch!
It’s winter and cold….
the river stands calm under the thick ice that formed
There is fish there still swimming along, alone
no one bothers them…
there is ice fishing too…
The nature is undisturbed
it’s a deep cold
not many people are even outdoor
to enjoy the wonders of ice broke in pieces
that look like or, are frozen waves…
In the evening is a quiet feeling
the water is clear, the birds start singing
they find their offsprings and chat
The nature revived
What a splendor!
All green, full of life!
You feel the river calling your name.
