Both are very different. nightfall

the sound of water

moving through me Jeff is talking about the 'sound of water' moving through him. He is not actually in the river at the moment when this haiku was written.

Whereas you are talking about being in the river and allowing the water to 'flow' through you. houseboat

letting the river flow

through me Just my take!
