Learning from Water

Just off the road

a few hundred feet

back behind the trees

along a rock cliff

a waterfall flows

not a Niagara 

nothing that grand

just a small waterfall

that glimmers 

as the water cascades

down from the rocks

high upon the Fells

it’s in this spot I sit

listening to the water

watching it flow out

then closing my eyes

just to hear

the sound

as water flows down

beneath my feet

into the creek

taken out under the street

a moment of quiet

learning once again

about water

that flows effortlessly

without care

over obstacles

in its path

to reach its destination.
