Breaking Free, Traveling Far

The sun is warming the land, despite refusing to show its shine. 
Our stiff streams are breaking free. 
 They are rushing away, making irresistible music in my winter weary ears.
Across the prairie. 
This water will travel to the Red River of the North. The river will take it across the border into Canada. 
It will rush into Lake Winnipeg and then be moved by the Nelson River into Hudson Bay. 
It's a long cold trip. Along the way there will be soaking and seeping and flooding. Some of the water will not all make it to the destination. The stream  follows the path of least resistance to the lowest point it can access. That is the nature of water as it travels to the ocean.
We are happy the water is once again flowing as that means Spring is on its way to GriggsDakota.
