Poetic Wednesday: The River

The River

Infamous —
The glistening water flows.

Dangerous —
The rapids are exposed.

Beautiful —
It shimmers in the night.

Curious —
The people stop to stare.

Incredulous —
“Why! It’s only a creek!” some cry.

Stupefied —
“No, it’s quite magnificent,” some sigh.

Greedily —
Some want to own the land.

Horrified —
Some stop and take a stand.

Mysterious —
For depending on the propinquity,
And the observing personality,
The River is never the same.
