Two River Haiku

The river that runs through my hometown is special to me. It has helped me through some difficult times. Although humans have tried to tame it with levees, dams, and all sorts of artificial means of control, every spring it rips through the man-made constructions, tearing them apart and overstepping it’s boundaries like the wild, free spirit it is. I hope I can be half as free, independent, and strong as the Arkansas River.

Arkansas River I


Swiftly flowing down,

Mississippi is your goal.

My heart flows with you.




Arkansas River II


The river knows me.

It hides my secrets from view;

my friend, my ally, my muse.
