Skulking Across the Plains
Like the twisted form of a dragon skulking across the plains, the mighty Missouri River bulges and contorts as it clutches the landscape north of Pierre, South Dakota. The question to ponder is whether the river is defined by the terrain through which it flows, or is the terrain defined by the flow of the river? Regardless, the twisted form presents us with the living embodiment of the spirit of water on earth…life-giving…defining…something to be revered.
It’s hard to decide which is more dominant here, the water or the rock, but when push comes to shove, my money is on the water.
A gorgeous image. Makes me want to pluck away at that dam though… Let that river sing!
