The Hugli river. #promptday10 #glopowrimo

The Hugli today is not the same as yesterday

and the water snaking will change soon.

The Hugli today water changes by the second

yet remains the same, much like a woman.

The Hugli today wears a robe of consistency

yet her very soul is one of change.

The Hugli today is a toddler and then a young girl,

then a teen zooming from zero to twenty

The Hugli today is sister, aunt and friend,

She grows into a raging siren.

The Hugli today becomes a mother, menopausal,

divorcee, widow, a senior, the crone.

But the Hugli today, always deep within

is the same girl, the same girl you’ve known.

The Hugli today is not the same as yesterday

and the waters will have changed soon.
