Waterfall

Standing beneath the waterfall

Free as a bird, a soldier awol
Splashing and shouting, a real McCoy

As cool water in endless cascades
Threw itself over humans and boulders
Froth and spray on rocks over decades
With the setting sun, a rainbow over our shoulders

I am in awe of the waterfall
Such strength and complete abandonment
Letting go utterly, it gives its all
A toast to waterfalls, there is no disagreement!

I find it gratifying and fulfilling to have an opportunity to put my thoughts, feelings and emotions into poems and haiku.
