Thundering Falls

Whirling, whirling,
whirling along distinctive paths
originating somewhere farther back,
beyond the crest. . .
foaming frenzied water
(once but mere faint streams
as placid as our souls before we met)
now travels faster, faster,
gaining in strength and intensity.

Beneath the glow of an amber moon,
we, young lovers,
lie where we have fallen
in this jasmine-scented night.
In our rapture, we hear
the rushing streams converge
and make their sudden dip.
Thundering, thundering,
the frothing water falls. . .

Our hearts, like the streams,
have become as one,
pounding, pounding. . .
as the beautiful cascade
resounding endlessly
inside our heart and mind
this splendid night.

    thanks so much what you said about my free verse. I feel so insecure with it and wish I could more often write in this way.
