(noon or after)
I saw the most gorgeous falls today,
Burney Falls CA.
On the way
The river water was soothing
As it rushed past.
Oh my God!
It is spectacular, inspiration of God
One of his most brilliant creations.
The existence of something higher
Cannot be denied when in the face
Of steadily rushing pounding cascades of water.
I have been all over the world
But this is by far the most spectacular
And the mist rising off the falls is like
Natural cocaine for the body.
Suns reflection turns the water underneath
A vibrant turquoise blue.
So magical to have a place like this
In the midst of so much chaos, euphoria.
I wonder how many poems have been inspired here.
How many people have experienced a sense of beauty,
And wonder and tranquility.
One could never fully capture the grandeur of this place if they tried.
How can you not acknowledge the existence
Of something more powerful than you
When you see this place?
For your soul not to acknowledge such a beauty
Would be truly pathetic sadness.
I wish my friends to appreciate this peace as much as I do.
Truly gorgeous and to take the source of these falls
Home with me.
I could listen to this all day, every day
For the rest of my existence.
All you see is black and brown mountain moss
And plants green cover and cascades
Of sheer white water,
1,000,000,000 million gallons every day.
The water pours constantly like a never ending shower.
The mist swirls around us cooling us from the natural
Heat of summer.
My appreciation is due to God.
What an appropriate place to be on a Sunday.
I wish this memory seared in my soul forever.
Can’t you tell?
I love waterfalls.
Will my friends have to drag me away today?
Sri rama chandra kripalo bhaja mana harana bhave darunam.
It forces one to look up to take notice
Of the beauty above.
How small we are in comparison.
