The thing in the water

Rivers and streams laugh around boulders
tumble down slopes
burble drunkenly against their banks

lie in wait
ready to trip us at fords
pull us under as we swim

You waters with no feeling
have you regrets as you flow past?

In your heart
things you cannot express
deeds you do not enact?
