The clear water strokes over, 

colors the stream like a live 

painting, the water a brush 

moving over stones in tones

of amber, sage, citrine — 

some covered in shades 

of green moss below fish

gliding over, glinting like quicksilver,

swimming over earthen shaded pebbles 

–raw sienna to  burnt umber — 

peaceful mosaics under

the dip and swirl of water 

in constant motion, the painting

ever-changing with the wind,

the heat, the rain, 

so sometimes dim when

dried from drought, no

brush to move the colors,

so they still into
