The River The Land, The People, The Cache — Greg Hobbs

The River The Land, The People, The Cache

We are the land, the river keepers,
the public who owns the water resources,

We are those who live along the waters,
those whose duties require running the water
through the ditches to those who own use rights,

We are those who own the bed, the banks
of the stream, the lands through which
the arteries of the ditches run,

We are the look, the feel, the faces, the hands
of Colorado, the bundle of rights and duties
that inter-depend upon each other,

We are the Cache – for and with each other –
for all the creatures who must rely

On our best creative judgment,
always shaping.

Greg Hobbs 11/8/2019
