Taconic Waterfall - Published by: Halcyon Days, Issue 13

Taconic Waterfall

The waterfall sat beside me,

we talked three hours 

getting to know each other.

When I got up, she tagged along

following me through the hollow. 

Her liquid voice on rocks burbled soft as moss.

She harmonized with the bird chorus, 

sang a lullaby through my open window,

blanketed the crescent moon and stars.

She smelled the lilacs on the lawn,

lily-of-the-valley in the garden, 

hugged the vegetable seedlings,

threaded the labyrinth to its center. 

Her broken open whiteness

walked everywhere in Pumpkin Hollow.
