Waterfall

Standing here, at the edge of the water,
Falling, falling,
Rushing.
Beneath me, above me, around me,
Falling, falling,
Rushing past,
Out of sight,
Gone.
Drop by drop.

 

The great wave,
always standing high
Above my head,
Towering,
Dangerous,
Perilous,
Tamed, distant.

Water rushing under me,
The noise drowning everything else,
A wall, that seems to bury me.

Breathlessness,
Dizziness,
Light-headedness,
As I stare into the depths
Of the water
Falling, falling,
Rushing,
Above,
Beneath,
Everywhere around me.

The swirling floods take away
Everything.
All thoughts about tomorrow,
About yesterday,
About the past and future,
Myself,
Time itself.

Only water rushing, rushing,
Falling.

Endless beauty,
Dreadfully wonderful.

Swirling,
Raging, gurgling,
White foam,
Grey, green, blue flood,
Eternity,
Nothingness,
Everything!

Everything dissolves into the
Roaring abyss to my feet.

Dizziness,
Conjures up
A desire to join the
Swirling party,
The gay waves, carried away to
Different shores, the end of the world,
Eternity.

Everything dissolves,
Falling, falling,
Rushing.

If I just fell, and ended it all,
Right now,
I didn’t mind,
I wouldn’t fear,
As today, yesterday and tomorrow
Merge
By the hand of the sheer clear water’s force,
Dissolve into nothingness,
Everythingness…

But there is a small part of my
Consciousness,
Still clinging to itself,
My identity,
My life.

So I stand, watching time
Flowing by,
Breathing the endless beauty,
Majesty,
Power,
Of the eternal water.

Falling, falling,
Rushing.

Endlessly…
 

Yes, the waterfalls at the Rhine really impressed me... though it took me a while to write it down…. Those were the thoughts I had then…. Dizzy from all the noise and the swirling…It would have been easy to forget myself there… joining with the River - but I didn’t want to, of course…  So no worries… It was just so immensely impressing…
