Following this gentle golden river, I allow myself to fall under the spell of its lazy current. Going up and down, I find this flow invigorating. My journey begins with the waterlilies. Stopping for a brief moment, I enjoy the view before me. Seconds pass and I begin to unravel the mysteries of the river bank. Small splashes of water suggest the arrival of river folks, frogs, turtles, and dragonflies. Goldfish turn their bodies to find the source of the water's surface disturbance. It is nowhere to be found. It is time for me to move on. The current drops me at a safe bay. The leaf. This is it, my shelter for the night. So I stay cuddled by the green sheets of my bed. The night comes and covers me with a soft blanket of darkness. [Weronika Nossowicz]
