What better way to celebrate than by treating yourself to a poetry collection?
By the waterfall
In the darkness of the dawn
by the waterfall where wet curtains meet
she tiptoes over slippery rocks
singing softly to rising ripples.
In the cool of the morning
peals of giggles ring out like raindrops
as she drops her dress and lifts her face
to whirl in liberated circles.
In the heat of the afternoon
she dives through silver sheets
into the limpid pool below
where herons dart and fishes swim.
In the shade of the evening
she floats among sunlit shadows
surrounded by scented petals
cloaked in azure calm.
