Hidden from all view,
ancient brick culverts guiding.
Secret river Frome.
This Haiku has special resonance for me, because it relates to some of my work which is to help the citizens of Bristol, and visitors, understand more about the hidden waterways beneath their feet.
How can they care about what they cannot see? I believe that by helping people connect with these hidden secrets, they will care more, and maybe, just maybe, change the way they interact with the water environment.
Use less water, waste less water, stop using toilets as waste bins, stop chucking household waste into the river, enjoy the abundant biodiversity water brings. Water is life.
