Down falls the River of Light
falls to such a beautiful sight
shimmers in dark pools around my feet
sparkles and cools

With such grace as only gravity can provide
It comes to touch me by my side
for a moment caress my soul
for a life time of joy I feel from you

my dear Waterfall

So cool sits your grace
falls fresh upon my face
So natural your touch

fills me with hope to
climb the up coming slope
that life might take me
to reach your peak.

The rewards I seek
is not in photographs I take
can not keep you there
Like I can here in my heart

Where once inside my soul
you can sparkle your energy and grow
together join the two of us
so close in the dark woods of the forest

we can see the river run

streaming life’s energy
to everything you touch
it’s almost too much
for me to grasp

your essence
cries out to me
so I can see

We are all connected to you
River of Life
We flow with you always together
under the canopy of the Sun

Flow away as only gravity can take you
So determined the course
Flows down stream as one
continuous motion forever

Linked like this I stop here
experience your shimmering grace
for a moment I stand near
see your glimmering face

So refreshing the sight
sparkles my eye
lost in the moment
I start to cry

My own Waterfall
falls for you now
for you to see
To gather as one

your water and mine
flow now together down
into the sea
where we are free

Once more to join our Sun
rain comes running down
through the canopy
I See you Fall

Come over your ledge
into my pond
where I stand with you
In this place

Once/forever again in your pace
In this way you touch my face
for a moment We stay in place.
In this way touch your grace.

    Another beauty Joseph !
    I can hear the falls and fell the spray !

  • Thank you George, for the great feedback! This I like better than my big one of the falls ! Finished it pretty quickly therefor more impressionistic than my more contrived /illustrative larger one(although I like the colors in the large even if its not realistic and natural)
