A Cascading Journey


My thoughts are falling
on my stone heart, leaving a deep cavity
on my heart, like the waterfall
falling from high mountain
piercing rock of many layer
swipe all element with flow of cascade
making a stream of eagerness
to meet and submerge with a river
asking to come on her way
to meet the greater ocean, from where
my thoughts will evaporate and
reach the sky, and to drizzle with
mild water, to irrigate creation
to quench thirst of creature.

    A thoughtful write. Beautiful lines....
    my thoughts will evaporate and
    reach the sky, and to drizzle with
    mild water, to irrigate creation
    to quench thirst of creature. Beautiful cascading journey one followed by another to serve the purpose of journey.

Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
