I’ll be a black water river

black water river poem by steven james humphreys

I’ll be a black water river

slow flowing dark water who took its time

over brown and glittery rocks with mossy hair

my fish would be well fed moving and wiggling about my mind

leaves would sink like lead weights resting on blackened pebbles

white sand on my shores surrounded by trees

looking down to my mirrored face

they know how to get here

my people know I listen

my words babble over the bottom rocks

I speak peace and tranquility

well hidden and serene.
