a continuing series of ever increasing oddities, part XXI

there is a river that runs far underground that has never seen the light of day

fed by one underground aquifer to travel through a honeycomb of caverns and spill into another

pale creatures uncatalogued by ever inquisitive scientists live and die in this unlit land

it is mindless in its flow in the molecular need to establish even pressure in unkempt devotion

today was much like any other

until it most certainly

was not

and the water found itself flowing through a new crack in the bedrock towards locations unknown

exciting

not to the river of course

it is not sentient.

but how neat
would that be?
