Creature

The lonely creature waits by

the river for a companion

water rises and pebbles shift

 

the creature sits on his rock

while the sky lightens and darkens

the river is low and fellows are scarce

 

he taps his foot again and again

as the trees around him have gone

the stream is missing along with a friend

 

creature lays his head down

dirt is all that is left for him

And closes his eyes to meet his new comrade
