Rivers are like snakes
With a designated route
And hidden dangers.

The zigzag way of walking is a fabulous similarity between river and snake, it is so poetic imagery, and then we came to the point stop and thinking about 'hidden dangers' which is the secret behind the strength of this short and deep poem, very well penned and onto my fav list with a big 10++.

You are absolutely right! Rivers are like slithering snakes. In their curls and twirls, there is danger! During the rainy season, we hear of many deaths through drowning! Sometimes the water seem so calm and tranquil. Lured by the calm appearance, people dive into their placid surface, but get carried by the deep under currents! Beauty in brevity!

Rivers bring floods but also fertility to the soil. A nice short poem.
