Waterfall~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Waterfall

untitled

“Mountain Waterfall” by Linda Olsen

turgid and tumbled

perpetual flowing

ideas of great men

churn in rapids of history

crash against rocks

of hard validation

rechanneled by judgment

through fine pebbled sluices

that filter impure bits of

unsound reason and

abject presumption

these freshened

clean clarified waters

of potable truth

converge in a cataract

pouring their wisdom

over high ledges

to slowly erode these

last skeptical edges

then plunge headlong down

into deep shaded pools

whose location will

ever be hidden from all

but inquisitive minds

of determined persistence

thirsty for knowledge
