below the dam a textile mill used to thrive....

~
its head above the trees
it still wants to be noticed
far below the dam 
that now looms over it


~
back in its day
 there was no dam
the factory stood proud
and offered livelihood to those who worked in it

~
today its a mere shell
that offers nature
 a place to creep 
its fingers
into nooks and crannies

~
but even so
its original character
still shines through
