In response to prompt  : Meander

Meandering River

O wandering river tell me,

Where is your country,

Is there no end to your,

aimless wandering?

Are you homeless,

because there’s nothing

to hold you back?

One moment you

begin to ebb,

The next moment,

you are flowing.

You break one shore,

and rebuild the other.

What will you do

for one who loses both  shores?

You’re wrong to think I’m a stranger,

Don’t you have some time,

To tell me about your joy

and sorrow?

O wandering river,

I’m only asking you a question,

Don’t you have time,

to answer me?
