waterfall (Remove filter)
I listen to these words
as I fall through the water
accumulating down below
I listen as you sing
your sad sad song
like falling up a waterfall
falling in reverse
but always looping

Watch the water slowly flowing down,
Whilst it makes a soft and gentle sound.
This pleasant scene seems to speak to us,
To say, 'be calm and do not rush'.
One really must appreciate such beauty,
And may even say that it is our duty,
To witness such relaxing peace.
A feeling I wish would never cease.

This poem has its origins long ago in a jaunt on the Mississippi river on board the paddle-steamer SS Natchez.
As water-light dances through cabin blinds
in scintillant counterpoint to her chattering bow,
a brooding threnody of whistles fills up the big boat's horizon-lines;
the mate checks the bearing of her painted prow.
Well-worn warrior of river life, paddles slap...
