Dead river

what ‘s interesting
about walking along a dead river
there’s hardly any water

walking a dead river bed  leaves
footstep on ancient gravel ground
a small stream vanishes in grass
passing words hidden in left puddles
a white heron looking for frogs

water finds the way  from spring
to sea it surely flows
water to never ending water
like days flow from time to time
