Waterfall – A Cascade Poem

Waterfall

in the quietness
of my mind
my escape complete
 
water falling
soothing
in the quietness
 
lofty trees
sheltering, protecting
of my mind
 
the beating heart
of my stag, silent
my escape complete

    I like the simplicity of this. The repetition is so natural it goes almost unnoticed.

      Thanks so much Jane. I noticed Sue Vincent had posted your poem yesterday and I loved it long with the art so I gave it a go! 🙂

        I think the poem is one that Sue wrote for a poetry challenge I held a while back. I love the painting. It’s so enigmatic.

    I love the way this flows down the page and just right graphics to go only with it.

      Thanks Lisa. It was one of Jane Dougherty’s prompts. I loved her choice of Art and the fact she chose a cascade to go with that painting! 🙂

        Ah ok, didn’t realize it was part of a prompt and didn’t know Jane did prompts!

        I didn’t either. I just happened to read one of her posts that Sue Vincent had posted. I clicked on it and it was a challenge from June. I liked the art and the challenge age so I wrote something and submitted it. I hope she does more 🙂

        Yes that is very cool, maybe she will 🙂
