Poem: Waterfall

(Waterfall in Shenandoah National Forest, picture taken by me)

words cascade down on me like water from a waterfall
they pound down on me fast and hard,
washing away all the tension held in my body.

words with depth and weight like a mountain stream is cold,
the life giving waters wakes me into life
and heals my aching heart.

* We all need words of hope right now, but sometimes the sounds of nature say more than my words ever can. i found this hike to the waterfall renewing. i walked into the falls and laid my body against the mossy walls, and the water cascade over my body.
