does the mountains

or the oceans know

the truth of the vanishing rivers ~

the rumble of their waters

 in the silence of this moment

“ The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.” ~  Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
