I live by the river

I live by the river
Here it is forming an ox-bow
On the muddy plain

Soon the river
Gathering its force
Will want to straighten out

Can time
Do the same
And form an ox-bow
In the misty sky
Then straighten out

Leaving behind
The C shape
Like a baby embryo
That grows
Into a lake
Cut of
From the main-stream

As torrents of water
Crash across the neck of land
Of the ox-bow curve
And make straight again

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
