A Poem

babbling brook




facet of the


Hurrying on



Kicking rocks out of its way

Life springing up along its shores

Mice and

newts scurry about

Over into

ponds it spills where

quacking ducks reside

Rolling over tops of dams and

sliding under bridges


unforetold lands

Venturing near and far

Winding its way for

xoloitzcuintles to sip from it

Yonder more it etches its path into the earth, continuing to

Zoom on by, only to empty into the ocean at its end

    Love the rapid flow to mimic the water, and "Kicking rocks out of its way" is such a great line! Nice:)

    The flow of this (for lack of a better word) works very well to mirror your subject! 👏

    I felt I was on the journey, nicely done🏆

  • You had me at "babbling brook", Atomic. I enjoyed every word of this as it washed over me. And I'm guessing you had a lot of fun using the word "xoloitzcuintles"! Pretty impressive.
