Water Signs

Some streams out west
disappear, evaporate
into steam. Short-lived
snowmelt runs clear,
then runs dry.

Some streams back east
vanish into sinkholes.
Limestone caves
with unseen torrents
pulsing underground.

Some streams grow
to creeks and rivers.
A Lake Itasca trickle
reaches New Orleans
mighty fine.

No one knows what this
stream of ours becomes
But it flows like it has
Somewhere
important to be.
