Waterfalls’ Fury


A waterfall surrounded by large rocks;
who would dare
to venture too close?
Only to be swept away
by the dangerous
yet beautiful fury
of rushing waters.
I myself venture here.
Alas, I merely sit among the rocks
just beyond the waters reach.
So close to the rushing waters
yet totally safe among the rocks.
Still I am anything but safe;
I am still left vulnerable
to the rushing waters
of life.
