For visually challenged writers, the image shows a waterfall, its peat-coloured waters cascading over a rocky ledge and surrounded by trees.
The beating heart of the water can be heard
in the torrent rushing over the small fall
Following the white foam footsteps into darkness
I wonder if this is a gateway to another world?
As the sound of thundering water
Disappears behind me
The sudden silence, deafening
awakes my senses.
I hear bird song unfamiliar to me
They perch, watching me
Bright colours flashing in the sunlight
They are not from my world.
Should I have followed the torrent of water
Kept my feet firmly in my own world
Will my feet walk there again
Or am I to stay here in wonderland?
