The Waterfall

The serene waters drip
from the Heaven’s above
onto my head as I bathe
in the crystalline beverage
of crisp delights that
ignite the effigy of
diamonds orbiting around
my imagination in this
reflecting pool. Nature
grins eternally as I dip my
features beneath the cool
surface and delve into the
depths of the hydrating
realm which exists under
the land I recently
departed. As I breach the
surface, gasping for a
breath of rejuvenating
oxygen, I am returned to
the realm that I did just
exit, and I wave at the
golden star which shines
upon my flesh, and
creates a rainbow in the
froth that surrounds me.
The hum of fauna reaches
my ears as the sounds of
the world reverberate off
from the fog of luscious
humidity, and in this ever
sweet moment of spiritual
bliss, I am awakened to
the knowledge that there
is nothing more beautiful
than the waterfall I have

  1. I am reminded of two writers as I read this: James Joyce – for sentence length, and Mark Twain for his advice, “Show, not tell”. Well done.

  2. your words are transporting. it must be nice to find such a thing. however, my worry is to get absorbed in such a beauty, i might be dependent, that when it dries out, i’m sure in for hell.

    • I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Very interesting opinion; I never thought of it that way.

      • can’t say i’m a positive flower really. i’m a bit, shall we say, damaged. but it doesn’t mean i can’t appreciate the beautiful.

      • I’m not exactly positive myself. In fact I’m down right pessimistic most days.
        In your original comment you mentioned it was good to have found something so beautiful, and I avoided touching on this subject. The truth is, I personally have never seen a waterfall and would not know how it feels to bathe in its waters or any other such thing. I based the imagery on a story a friend of mine told from his experience, and from my idea of what a waterfall would be like.
        I think writing about longing to see or experience something often causes one to write more passionately, because in reality, that which is so sought after might be less than what was once anticipated.
        Also, I think we’re all a little bit damaged, some more than others, and I’m sorry you feel that way.
        But it’s good to be able to appreciate the beautiful things.

      • of course it gets more passionate with longing. pain looks good on paper. now it might be more interesting for you to jump into a waterfall. you have thought about the experience in detail and can compare it with the real deal once the opportunity arises. i’m always interested in these kinds of things. do we like something for what it is or do we like the idea of it? i’ll never figure it out.

      • I agree with the ideas you articulate within this comment. Again, you raise a vast quantity of interesting points, and your questions are incredibly thought provoking. Thank you for commenting.

  3. Wow… What beautiful visuals. The flow was like a gentle waterfall itself. Lovely, you talented spirit! Hope you are well!
