The Water’s Blessing

Nothing special happened
no major drought
no catastrophic event
just the man-made evolution
that accompanies a well-placed dam
along a thriving river.

The water’s blessing
(so the idea had been sold to us)
when it was removed
was that our community
would be allowed to grow.
Having been landlocked
for so long
I guess that seemed
like a really good idea.

This ship
was just another piece
of a collected miscellany
that I
sought and discovered.

This iron behemoth
and all the memories it once had
are no more known to me
than when I started.

Still I search.
Hoping to find the impossible
among the remains of the past.
