A SPRING – May 2020

By Jack McShane

My name is water

Emerged from earth

I am a spring

Deep in the forest

I’m joined by others

We form a stream

Move in concert

The ground is steep

Our speed increases

A gorge is cut

Terrain is flat

A pond is formed

Exit that

And now a dam

We are a reservoir

We overflow

Joined by more

We are a river now

On we go

We taste the salt

Together an ocean now~
