The Waterfall - Poem by Tng Wee Song Wilson

Humble hut by the cascading waterfall,
Land covered by the pure snow,
The trees stand tall and unyielding.

O, the sound of flowing water,
The hermit concentrates his focus deeply,
Surely 'tis life's physical embodiment?

This waterfall to end in time,
'Tis he learned in his contemplations,
That beauty expresses in itself sadness.

Yet this matters not to him,
He shall for this fleeting moment,
Enjoy this tranquil nature's beauty.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was inspired to create this poem after I visualised myself as an ancient hermit, living in a shack by a waterfall.The season in this poem is Winter, because to me it is the most beautiful season.It is a season of tranquility and silence, but yet in the silence is sadness.Winter is a season that that upon deeper thought and insight opens up an entire new world.
