The River Flows by Kailey Jennings

The river flows quiet and swift
It twists and turns as the waters drift
It branches and breaks-its fingers entwine
It grows and grows-snakes like a vine.
The river with the soft scent of a calm day
With the smell of clean-hanging-still-in the grey
And sweetness carried on the breathe of morning
It caresses the river-the waters flowing.
The river-crystalline from winter melt
And sweet with the summer soon felt
It tastes of springtime-the season between
And flows the river-so blue and clean.
The river-its lazy trickle of water
The musical rhythm-the ocean's daughter
It whispers and murmurs-a song of its own
Playing over and over-in continuous drone.
The river-so clear and cool
The water flows-the color like a jewel
Its soft arms embrace the shore
The river surging from the days before.
The river flows quiet and swift
It twists and turns as the waters drift
It branches and breaks-its fingers in twine
It grows and grows-snakes like a vine.

Beautiful poem Eco. The Root, Mississippi, and The Big Hole are some of my favorites. Your turtle story makes me very angry at BP and the administration that gave them free reign.
