Treasure Island

Nate Flying Owl

(01/07/88 / Milwaukie, OR)

Soft Spray

As gravity pulls river water down
A huge explosion of sound reverberates
And I feel the falling of the water
As if I was a part of the river

As the water glides over the high cliff
I strain to listen to ev'ry sound made
Expecting some profound revelation
To hear the words of God in the water

As the waterfall plunges to the earth
Releasing a soft spray that kisses me
I listen to the din of the water
Hoping to hear the lessons of nature

As I stand here listening to the roar
Of the waterfall moving before me
I also hear the peace surrounding me
Easing the chaos that torments my soul

As the soft spray kisses me, I simply
Relax and enjoy the calm of nature.

    The rushing down of the waterfalls foams to release a soft spray touching you. The poem has a natural feeling to it with lovely description. Good work! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
