A Welsh Haven at It’s Best

Please join me to explore Cenarth Falls in South Wales.

I sat for a while

at the river’s edge

where it flowed

in total innocence;

contemplating

in echoing mind;

this way

this way;

that way

that way??

yesterdays doubts

merge

with waterfalls

desiccated

into

droplets

exploding into

Mother Nature’s

tears.

Colliding

with gnarled

trees;

branches become

crooked fingers

of

days gone by ;

the myths resurrected

reborn into ancient

days of yesteryear

cry and mingle

with the gull’s call.

On a gnarled log

I sit and watch ;

Water gushes;

in mid-journey;

water falls

into gaps so wondrous

feeling

flowing

and enticing.

Exhale each

breath filled dream;

allow these

pictures

of mental attitude to

protect and magnify.

The river

carries our voices

into the crescendo

that rises above the gushing

emotions

of love so wondrous.

Her secrets

will rise to heights

not yet

savoured;

explored;

accepted.

Your mind’s eye will

carry

each droplet

through life’s

probing passage.

Meandering

twisting

and turning;

to

and

fro.

I arrive at a journey

matured;

Will my dream

live on into tomorrow?

Will it be cleansed

beyond recognition?

Will I lose hope?

Will I cry?

As my heart rises with the

crescendo

of each rivulet;

each torrent

of a river’s

journey ;

way up high;

too high to be

lost;

to high

to be damaged.

I cried and

my tears mingled with

Mother Nature’s

magical lanes of tears;

lanes of pride and lanes of faith.

Minds cleansed;

hearts understood;

contemplation complete;

emotions play

with the spray;

that treasures all.

Moistens each

dried up rivulet

to our heart;

to our soul.

Into each days’ estuary

she will flow;

which one

is hers to decide !!

In which lane will she flow to the sea??

The choice is hers:

The choice is ours.

    I share your poem’s sadness. You are not alone in being humbled by Mother Nature. But, she takes care of her own. Not everyone is tuned in, but that is why we are here. If you are up for visitors, will you still be there in September? You are also cordially invited to our sleepy village: 53, -0.535353.

    Eddy, This is such a beautiful tribute to the powers of water and people. Also, I love your two models: they’re very photogenic, and very illustrative of what you say.
    Respectfully, and with many thanks to you, Ellie and Dai, Derdriu
