contemplating the waterfall



the flowing water
sprang
from the heart of the mountain
sometimes calm crystalline
sometimes upset opaque
and it only stopped
on the edge of the precipice
there it stopped
scared by the power of heights
slept gently
in the arms of the mountain
loving and having been loved
then giving birth
to a child
whom they named
waterfall
