Do We Dare Waterfall

Pummelled intensity, underneath we face her force Exhaled wide eyed in white, witness rainforest exhibit Splashed grins enfold a third tongue, waterfall Her glistening christening combines us in sublime Drilled by severity, her embrace as strong as yours Like waterfall's flattened rock, I erode, smoothed Standing fused firm against her punishing torrent Insatiable waterfall baptism pelts my opened senses Cleansed by new beginnings, deafened by dedication Buckets of vision catch my breath in virgin shroud Faces almost touching give lee from ferocious gush Together steadied in her rapidly travelled path Lacklustre lizards, afterwards secure sun's approval Ancient rock sears wet backsides without burning Snoozing pulls us here and there consecutively Amorous dreams unmeasured as Saturday morning Drying dares our sizzled legs go again to her vigour Your rigid gaze raises my temperature, raging Exposed thoughts post drenching return me Pause flushes me with water's unwieldy ways 20th August 2020

From the reverse surprise of the title - 'Do we Dare' i/o 'Dare We do' - to the finale 'thwart,' you held me spellbound, O Poetess! This is a work of art, a true masterpiece. I was right under that waterfall all the way, feeling what you wrote, like a series of bone-chilling gut punches. FAVE! Bravo, Sigrid! :) gw
