  2. 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-ee

    Mills bros.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  22. I felt inspired with this prompt but also replaced your great borrowed image with a river of my own

  23. The prompt reminded me trips on the river in hired rowing boats. Dangling your hand in the water and touching overhanging branches.

  24. wow, I'm surprised where this one took me... will be back later for reading. hardly managing these days. :-)

  25. Serendipity is at work again. I hope it is well-received.

  26. 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.

  31. it's a great experience reading the different ways people look at something. insightful takes.

  32. 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...

  33. Beautiful scenery....love this Tess! :-)
