Water And Rock

The water leaps
Over the edge
As if to die
But never more alive

Fearless and bold
Letting go
Dancing wildly on rock
A grand orchestra

Rushing song
Deep in the woods
Harmony of freedom
Rhythm of life

Nature of water
Flows everywhere
Nature of rock
Steady, not moving

Two opposing ways
Bring the greatest beauty
Water and rock
Both become more

Water most alive
At the place of rock
Rock shaped by water
Into shimmering colors and forms

Such is the rhythm of earth
Natures alike whisper quiet melodies
While diverse spirits
Play the passion of life
