Stopped

#waterwheel #promptuarium

There was a time, where this mighty wheel

would turn the stones, that would crush the wheat

for the flour that made your morning bread

Today however, it’s taking a day off

for some clever person thought

chucking stones into a stream

was a good idea

and while the fish go another direction

along the river bank

the mill wheel sits there , waiting

waiting for the water to return
