The Forest Stream

River roaring, water pouring
over walls of rock.
Bubbles seething, upwells heaving,
gurgling waters talk

Brown leaves floating, insects boating,
slowly swirling pool.
Shadows bathing, green ferns wading,
lapping in the cool

Rapids flashing, white foam dashing,
gouging out the shore
Branches dunking, boulders clunking,
surging corridor.

Ripples glitter, fir trees shiver,
trembling pines and leaves.
Whirlpool whirling, backwash curling,
in the sudden breeze.

  1. Nice imagery and rhyme. Several streams come to mind while reading this poem.
    Looking forward to the next one.
