A River

A River short poem

A river flows through many people’s places and around dangerous spaces
A yellow corn field and an amazing pink windmill as a summer embraces
A black crow on a wooden fence and a dusty road as a fire in the distance blazes
A sparkle of dew on green grass and a big brown dog barks as a ginger cat he chases
A purple velvet sundown and a light blue fish comes to me as he splashes swish swishes
A white lantern illuminates and a man with a black cloak runs by, into shadows dark reaches
A smell of lavender and rows of peach trees as bright red blue butterflies fly light races
A thundering storm and a town of people running around as flood gates open in places
A train bridge and a high orange valley of rock surrounds as a golden eagle soars in blue sky oasis
A tired old man sits on a bench and I look at him as he just dreams away along this river which amazes

A River By The Mountains

A River By The Mountains short poem

There is a river by the mountains, Covered by the deep dark forest. There is a river by the mountains, Where tired travellers take rest. There is a river by the mountains, Which flows like a lonely soul. There is
