To Be A Waterfall

Oh the joys to be a waterfall,
Flowing quietly down to the streams,
How truly and idyllically beautiful,
To be so lazily lost in sunlight gleams,
I’d like to be a waterfall,
Without a care in the world,
Twinkling and dancing and curving towards landfall,
Where all my problems would unfurl,
Oh the joys to be a waterfall,
Flowing quietly down to the streams,
How truly and romantically bountiful,
To be swept up in that daydream …

    1. Hey Josh – yes, water has a magical power. When l used to live in Surrey, there used to be a Pond there called The silent pool, it was a creepy yet strangely beautiful location – the water was crystal clear for a non moving pond – and watchers of this setting were often cast into a trance – they said they could hear a waterfall despite no movement to the waters and it beckoned them to commit suicide such was the allure of it. Water is more magical that many think.

      On a side note my friend, l am running a series called Truly Inspired – have a read and drop me an email if you would like to participate. I will write up your answers in a post.

      1. There are so many tales regarding water…and some more chilling than others. In Belize, some people believe in a being called La Llorona, a sort of crying water-spirit who lures people to their deaths. Spooky!

        I’ll definitely check out your new series!

    1. Glad you liked it. I used to live in North Wales [UK] and there are literally hundreds of waterfalls there of all shapes and current, l was always left feeling just lost in their tranquillity 🙂

  1. The picture is stunning! The poem is beautiful!! I love waterfalls. There’s a place near me that I recently visited called “Swallow Falls.” It’s my Oasis. I love to go and just sit, watch, & listen!!
