Commercial life blood
Nucleus of activities
Dotted along side

Romantics around
leisurely flow of peaceful
serene surroundings

Beware a monster
Destruction when awakened
Lethal, lots of tears

Written for Leo's HH, September Heights #287, Day 14  with prompt - river


  1. The monster can always sneak out and ruin ones day

  2. ah a river can def be devastating when awoken and swollen with rain....

  3. Like a message from a party exploring a far off reality. . . .

  4. Oh, that devastation is still haunts the mind...very nicely done, Hank! Bravo...

  5. The mighty Ganges only begins as a spring from the Himalayas, but at spans through several nations before it flows into the Bay of Bengal and hence into the Indian ocean. Indeed it grows into a monster when the alluvial plains are flooded much to the suffering of the people.

  6. nice job....I found the link about the photo fascinating,,,

  7. Clever. Equally good as a whole or in isolation

  8. Monster was unleashed this year Hank..
    destruction in Kedarnath is the perfect example..

    you summed it pretty well !!
