Just As The Water Falls


when the world weeps, tears are gathered
into the clouds, are moistly clustered
too heavy to keep, the sky does whine
on thirsty ground, heavens divine
drops showering, from leaves unto waters to lay

along with current comes rushing
among the rocks gone crushing
it whispers.. murmurs… and moaning
in search of stillness…in fear…gnawing
striking ray on the ripples…glowing… flowing

goes on… wandering through, to the far end
looks on heaven… was a sigh, to send
a heartthrob for a long water fall
dripping through to a waiting stall
from wailing tears, drops of water that fall

amidst and among the waters deep
awakens the soul that’s long been at sleep
in silence with no ripples ever heard
deafened with only eyes that stared
only to the echoes of the wind be shared

stunted waters down from a reef
holds the surging stillness in disbelief
from the crushing roar of the waters that fall
time ticks for every drop like tears rolling
so does life, with heart and soul, still standing
