... not obvious...

... not obvious...

By PeterHunter

… not obvious…

… mistakes… people make…
… all to often…
… in their thinking… is…
… to chase the obvious…

… example…
…raising the level of a small stream…
… try to build a dam…
piling, earth upon earth…

… then…
…watching the current wash your efforts away
… reinforcing it with stones and twigs…
…more and more work

… encourage the stream to make the effort…
a stake or two… strung with chicken wire…
across its width… then…
… an hour or two…

… almost invisible…
… leaves, bits of reed…
and other debris…
drifting with the current…


… 'till…
…clogging the netting…
… soon …
… a dam forms…

… then the rains come…
… bringing a tree in the current…
