Stream of consciousness

The way the stream begins its journey
From the mountain top
Is stuttering
Slow
And it’s barely even a stream

Then it gathers momentum
As it finds a pace it carves out a groove
More substantial
More permanent
It knows its future further down the hill may be stronger.

It occasionally splits out some way down the hill
Sometimes it may settle into an enclosed pool mid-way down a mountain side
Here the waters are still
Stagnant
Eventually it may dry up in the hot summer months

Mostly though, the water continues down Flurrying through the valley
Joining new streams until it bolts it’s way down into the river
The metropolis of water.
Premier destination for all mountain-top starter-streams.

And the river ebbs, meanders, rallies and twists throughout the counties

Until it arrives at the sea
And there the journey is complete.
