Beyond The Waterfalls

if you follow the rowdy river’s route

for a day or two

there’s a place downstream

where you can take your canoe

and put it safely on a spot of land

so you can continue your quest

to see something grand

like the mighty mountains majesty

and towering waterfalls

as far as you can see

but beyond the waterfalls

is a mystery to me

Repetition: The Earth’s Opera

the steady flow of water cascading down ancient cliffs

fed by hidden springs forever full

repeating repeating repeating

a cycle stretching back to the dawn of time

a chorus of crickets singing

repeating repeating repeating

the heartbeats of mother Earth

the sound of whistling winds

repeating repeating repeating

a secret orchestra for the universe

and songs for other galaxies

repeating repeating repeating

throughout eternity
