spring runoff
floods low flung washes
lichen spreads

shadowy rivers
hold root bound secrets of birch
clouds eclipse the moon

rain alters
massive limestone cliffs
hourglass sand

planes the indigo
waking waves

"planes the indigo." wow, that line is a winner.

lovely series, I also thought "planes the indigo" a wonderful phrase. My favorite, the second one with the root bound secrets, the clouds and moon set the scene and gave more weight to the secrets, my mind was searching for them.

I love the imagery these present. You captured so much so simply.

The last one's my favourite ~ 'waking waves' sounds just wonderful.

I love the sound of these, I love how "floods low flung washes" evoked the sound of rushing water. I also loved "hold root bound secrets of birch", and "planes the indigo". These lines took me somewhere and left me feeling reflective.

"Rootbound secrets" by "shadowy rivers" Beautiful.

if I called this a picturesque poem would that make sense? it paints a beautiful picture

I love that each part shows how one is affected by another. I, too, adore "planes the indigo," but I can't ignore "hourglass sand."

You have a great gift for final stanzas, judging from this poem and "Going Home Again." Both of them really work, I think.

"planes the indigo
waking waves"

This was my favorite too. In both words and art, you are able to capture movement so well.
