The river of god [3]

July rain flooded Te Awaoteatua stream. Strange things left their lairs and crawled in the water; myths skimmed low over the turbid pools, hissing; dreams flitted in and out of the rapids, murmuring.

Kia ora Pete,
The Taniwha were active indeed. This reminds me a bit of your work which hangs upon my wall and I am gazing at now.

River of gold.

Kia ora Robb. Looking into a river or stream for more than a few minutes always seems to get my mind working differently ;^)

Zhoen, I'm just glad it's not the "real" thing. That would be the end of it — it would never survive the rapacious exploitation.
