Water united in the creek.
Whirls around rocks, lively bubbling
Glittering swirls of playful joy
Singing its tumbling song of happiness.
Acceleration causes confusion.
Foreboding change provokes irritation
Resistance grows against the speeding flow
Yearning calls for past security.
Ledge triggers separation.
Dispersed by powers of increasing pace
Fiercely clinging together, filled with fright
Looming unknown casts chilling shadows.
Drops falling curtain of stringed pearls.
A moment of rest
Remembering the common source.
Wind sprays the fabric apart.
A faltering moment, the harmony breaks
Yield into the inevitable journey.
Mist curls what was in disarray.
Loss of orientation
Seclusion evokes feeling alone.
Falling into endlessness
No senses or direction
Centred on a fragment of self.
Rock shocks with black, hard pain.
Excruciating splash to dissolution
Incessant hissing shriek
Foaming chaos fills the steaming pool.
Water emerges from surprise.
Squeezing through the narrow gap
Joyous recognition all is one
In the calm pond of reunion, all is known.
