I watch clear, crystal water
Untouched by outsiders,
Abundant and swelling,
Teeming with motion
Cascading over rocks, under a canopy of wildlife
A trail to follow,
A game to keep up with.
Upon reaching the end
It all erupts
Pouring over the edge of the earth
And when it has run its course,
And the water bubbles, froths, and finishes
It settles into a tranquil calm
I have never known before.
