Waters Deep

Bright surface belies
The waters green depth
Fresh spring water moving
From earth deep vessels
Spilling onto the rocky creeks
Becoming flashing streams
To fill the steep hollows
And dark places
Where once they lived.
The lake still moves
In ancient river patterns
Its flow the memory
Of past profound
And waters deep
Changeable and immortal.
