Muse30 Prompt #22
For the Muse30 series, you can use the word or the imagery on the graphic as your prompt. Each background is completely different!!! To get started, time travel back to the entire list of prompts here. I'm sharing ideas I've developed for each prompt.
"Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away."
A little brainstorming to start... water, waterway, shore, fish, swimming, bridge, tree swing, high water mark, riverboat, a cruise down the River Thames. Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. You could create a page using lyrics from The River or a song from the album. The River was Springsteen's fifth studio album, it was released in 1980. One of the songs from the album, Hungry Heart, is one of Springsteen's well-known concert sing-alongs.
"I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests."
Per reference.com: "The symbolism of the river is centered around its nature as a moving body of water. Moving water is able to find its way through nearly any kind of physical impediment until it merges with the ocean. A river's movement has also led it to being used as a symbol of life. In literature as in life, cities and towns often spring up on riverbanks, seemingly brought to life by the river's movement. The source of the river, typically small mountain streams, depicts the beginnings of life and its meeting with the ocean symbolizes the end of life."
“A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself.”
Per the Oxford Dictionary: "A large natural stream of water flowing in a channel to the sea, a lake, or another such stream."
