The river’s born from restless rain,
it grows and gathers strength
a source of tears that’s infinite
The river giggles over rocks to rest,
embraced by bogs in mountains where
river’s born from restless rain.
The river jumps, cascades in silver froth
from mountain over plains to sea
it grows in gathered strength.
The river slows to sloth in silt, and
meets the sea as sluggish serpent,
a source of tears. It’s infinite.
Amaya hosts at dVerse Poetic and inspires us to write about cascades, and as extra challenge we can write this in the cascade form.
