Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
entangled branches
sun ascends through lifeless limbs
beautiful chaos*

imperturbable river
keeps on flowing to the sea

  1. imperturbable….I heard “I’m pert, you are babble”…I was often accused of babbling by my teachers. Nothing new there then 😉

    By the way, love your work!

  2. Gorgeous blues in your photo. Always fun to stop by and see how many Blue Mondays participates I can visit. Enjoy the week!

      Thanks so much for your visit. I just got back home from a whirlwind weekend visit to Colorado, so won’t have time to visit other Blue Monday pages till tomorrow!

  3. Hello,

    This is a peaceful photo and the poem fits perfectly.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  4. Beautiful photo!
    Greetings, RW & SK

  5. i like this spirit of detachment and force………nice completion

  6. Lovely photo and the river water joining the sea reflects the completion of the journey to merge.

  7. Lovely conclusion and the picture complements the ending!

  8. lovely seeing the river! with all the pernicious floods and tsunamis, the rivers are more than imperturbable, I’d say.

  9. very few things are unaffected by the fall – the river has a mind of its own.

  10. Beautiful Colorado River, quite calm I’d say! Lovely words.
    Have a great week

  11. This really is nice.. but when I lived in Arizona I recall hearing theat all water was used before even reaching the sea… all used for golf coarses and grazing…

      I was in Colorado over the weekend, where this photo was taken. But they use a lot of water for golf and grazing in Colorado too! 😉

  12. wonderful completion with a lesson from the river – nice!

  13. Great photo with response to the prompt.

    Thank you,

  14. That says so much–stay true to your path 🙂

  15. Great philosophy in this completion MMT-we all follow our pre-destined path-though we may think we chart our own course:-)

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      So here’s a troubling question: If we don’t chart our own course, what’s the point of doing anything, since apparently everything is predestined?
