Haiku challenge: River & Stone

I liked this theme a lot. Here is a trio of haiku for Ronovan’s weekly challenge.

Over the earth’s bones

the river runs, strewing stones

and whitewater lace.


On the river bed,

where fish flicker and weed waves,

was stone, pebble gleams.


River of rocks rolls,

mountain thunders, dust billows,

grey ruin settles.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
