This river

This river
With its ebbs and flows
Office
Factory
Playground

This river
Looks peaceful on surface
Invisible
Snapping
Crocs

This river
Busy on a Sunday
Watch
For
Eddies

This river
Sometimes threatening
Little
Flood
Warning

This river
Older than time
Aboriginals
Tell
Stories

This river
Dirty with pollution
Swimmers
At own
Risk

This river
Life blood of community
Must
Look
After

Xxxxxxx

This poem is inspired by the photograph provided at sepia Saturday.

Peaceful on the surface, full of currents under the surface.
