Up a lazy river by the old mill run The lazy, lazy river in the noon day sun Linger in the shade of a kind old tree Throw away your troubles Dream a dream with me-eeMills bros.
Rivers are good. In Arizona we don't have too many and they would only qualify as creeks or streams to an Easterner but to us they are as magnificent as any Mississippi.
That is a beautiful picture. Thank you!
I use to have a recurring dream of floating in a canoe down a river with trees passing overhead. I even remembered the dress I wore. Past life?I have taken that moment and expanded on it here. Hope it makes the grade.Thanks for the fun challenges.
Stunning photo of the Irwell. I gather that it's not a very long river and it ends at the Mersey..."So ferry..'cross the Mersey..to this land..." Thanks. Have a good Sunday everyone! Laurel

Jinksy,It's my other avocation. :)rel
Lovely pic of a typical English river. Thanks for the prompt Tess.
this could be just down my road!!!Miss Tess..there is no man in this water...whats up?? Haha!!
An exercise in fast writing ... that will come back to haunt me for sure!
I'm back! Love this pic, it reminds me of the river behind my childhood home!
Looking forward to everyone' work. Went a bit off the reservation on this one!
Tess, you had read this a couple years ago, but I have never posted it as a MAG, and it is my river poem; enjoy, again.
Nice to be here again. Thank you for hosting this wonderful site.
The Mersey is Liverpool...The Ship Canal and the Irwell are Manchester...I passed it today. It was Lowry's river and in his day it knew awful poverty yet amazing community. Of such is life.
i am in...and will be around in a bit...
Hi Tess, In also. The photo is beautiful. I did my version, but tell R.A.D. Stainforth, I really enjoyed his base, as well as his bass. Your poem was lovely. k.
Thank you Tess. This is such an inspiring river picture. =D
This certainly brought back memories... I had forgotten! :)
A lovely river! One for sailing and reflecting! This is my first post for your Mag! Thanks, Karen
I felt inspired with this prompt but also replaced your great borrowed image with a river of my own
The prompt reminded me trips on the river in hired rowing boats. Dangling your hand in the water and touching overhanging branches.
wow, I'm surprised where this one took me... will be back later for reading. hardly managing these days. :-)
Serendipity is at work again. I hope it is well-received.
The river reminds me of the Connecticut River here in New England, normally wide, peaceful and serene. I wrote of a time last year when it was a little less peaceful.
I actually made it this week!
Sorry # 70 has to be removed!
On the list and the late hour will beg me to read tomorrow. Thank you everyone!
Nice prompt. Leaves open a vast menu of possible lines. Thanks for.
it's a great experience reading the different ways people look at something. insightful takes.
As Dave says, a vast menu of possible lines. In my case, a screenplay... well, only six minutes of it... but there is a river running through it...
Beautiful scenery....love this Tess! :-)
I saw this picture and this sad story came out. A big surprise because it's a beautiful picture. Thank you for your hard work, Tess. It's been a while for me.
I had to play twice - couldn't resist it!
Me too Jinksy. By the way I could not leave you a comment no Name/URL facility. Enjoyed your poem.My second contribution is of the nile river.
Thanks! Blogger does try our patience sometimes, doesn't it? LOL
Pranita, I tried to visit but for some reason my computer kept rebooting. Sorry.
I've done a kind of BOGOF prompt offering for this today...
Love the picture... not sure where the poem I wrote came from when I saw it, but anything that helps me write is a good thing!
