When we went to the Gardens last week, I spied a woman taking a picture in an unusual place. When I looked closer, I noticed that there was a hole cut out of the rock and you could see behind the waterfall there. It made such a wonderful image. I couldn’t help but follow suit.
When looking at the picture, I remembered the time that my husband and I hiked down to a waterfall and sat behind it. It was a beautiful sight. From there – I just imagined what it would be like to lie down behind a waterfall – the cool rocks – the mist – the peacefulness – what would it be like? I’m not sure – but I imagined this:
Behind the crystal waters
I’m softly lulled to sleep
Where I lay, the rock is smooth
The waters cool my feet.
In sleep, my dreams caress me
And waters sing their lullaby
Flash of colors illuminate
As rays of sunlight fill the sky.
And from my dreams, when I awake
I lie here lost in reverie
My life, when touched by nature’s bounty
Renews its vows of serenity.
