Green River – Wylie Russell Dam by Janet Keyes

Angled, the dam bends,

Vee-ing two halves together-

Odd old waterfall.

Life erupts shyly

Along greening riverbanks.

Spring comes to this place.

Summer- still water

Reflects green. Sparkling below,

Clear water dances.

Golden leaves with red

Flecks shimmering in sunlight-

Autumn has arrived.

Winter ice glistens,

Framing cold with frosty breath-

Cascading waters.

No longer useful-

Some beg for the dam to stay,

Valued for beauty.

Demolition comes,

So fish can move more freely-

Hold the memories.
