A stream trickles where a river once raged,
Majestic trees and little shrubs watch time pass.
Cliffs surround the scene in towering glory
Hard and cold yet somehow comforting.
Birds chatter and flit about inquisitively
Watching insects float on still lagoons.
On a single rock amid this tranquil scene
Nature unfurls its most amazing wings
Then as cooling waters shared so deeply,
Wash over the tingling aftermath
Unspoken promises that life composes
Are etched in that stone forever more
