“A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.”

The Waterfall

A graceful ballerina, dancing,

Leaping off the stage,

Twirling amongst the audience below.

A vibrant entertainer, sparkling,

Waving at the crowds,

Singing of joy and showering harmony.

A lasting natural beauty, flowing,

In an endless dance,

Hearing not the cry of the final curtain call.


So flows the stream, this hot summer day

Listen, can you hear the sounds of the waterfall

Tranquil even life, cool relaxing

Heat intoxicating debilitating strength,

Like the assuredness of melting ice drops,

Caressing my skin

Caught between ecstasy and pleasure

Can you feel the placidity

Tender kisses flowing softly

Liquid fingers against warm skin

Flowing sensations inter thoughts

A hot summer day, a world away

Enclosed in a cooling mist

Akin to a lovers embrace,

Droplets of affection, I succumb,

Whispers of expression

Eyes closed cool in darkness

Images, sounds enrapture my somber shell

Droplet splash heart racing, slowing unobtrusively

Hear the wisdom of the waterfall,

Nurturing sounds nature’s symphony

Hear the maker of beginnings

Substance of life giver of pleasure

This hot summer day, a world away


The water leaps and rushes over the rocks.

Flying through the air

It glimmers-

Each drop a diamond in an always-moving tapestry.

The curtain moves and changes,

Yet remains the same.

Always present, always changing,

Water against the rock,

Glittering through the air.

The roar,

The constant roar,

Monotonous and melodious

Fills the air.

Mist wells up from far below,

Leaping from the rocks as the water

Returns to the earth once more.

For a moment the water waits,


Sparkling beads in the air,

For a moment and forever.

Yet each drop must fall.

Though it be replaced by another,

Each drop must reach the bottom

And return to the calm river.

As each drop drifts away,

The waterfall thunders on.


Each day is a little life.

He is happiest who finds peace in his home.

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do.
