Firefly Falls

September 18, 2009
The waterfalls glisten and twirl,
As a million brilliant fireflies,
Flit down the mountain side.

Sparkling, shining, possibilities,
In this crystal water,
Like a light blue Crayola crayon,
Held by a two year old.

The gushing, splashing, roaring voices of the falls,
All meld together perfectly.
Like the hysterical laughter of best friends.
Ringing for all to hear,
Loud and clear.

The falls are like turbulent ribbons of life,
Each different and beautiful in their own right.
Beautiful as a million fireflies,
Creating halos of light.

Huh. Very fascinating. I could easily picture the waterfalls as they tumble into the vast pool of water that splash with the impact.
I loved how you used such vivid imagery. Keep it up.
