A nameless river [Watery Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
There was no name to remember this river by.  I was a stranger to its turquoise ripples, there was no memory waiting to surface as I watched the current whirl around the rocks.  

I didn't know the river's twists and turns; its scents were sweet but unfamiliar.

Every rock and blade of grass didn't know the texture of my skin; the trees crouching by its banks didn't know my name. 

Yet every playful splash, every refreshing spray, was an embrace.  Its whispers and murmurs sang of journeys I have yet to take.

So lush and green. It looks like the kind of place you'd find a hidden temple full of treasures.

I like to walk along a river listening to the whispering of the water, even when I don't know its name. Your words are poetic and photos are refreshingly lovely.
