‘Take Me To The River’

A river, sparkling sapphire, runs through;
Naked, raw chill of early morning;
X-ray image clarity/
Iridescent mineral hues.
Echoing, booming force of water;
Turquoise, appearing jewel-encrusted;
Yawing, deviating curvaceously.

Scraping, sluicing verdant valley,
Transporting alluvial detritus away.
Roman-emperor purple backcloth draped;
Eroding/dissolving; re-depositing/replenishing;
Snaking through clean-air pristine wild-scape –
Soothing visitors' careworn blues...
