Rumination

 

Crash.

Waves surge.

Rainbow’s edge.

The precipice.

Exulting in mist.

Spray of indecision.

Contemplating the abyss.

Ray of sunshine  reignites light.

Resolute decision to remain.

  1. A powerful nonet poem, Sis. That waterfall… it prompts rumination for sure. I love this line: “…Ray of sunshine reignites light…” That hope wraps around you. Hugs and love for joining in. ❤

  2. Rumination set me thinking… how far is the umbrella person from the surge of waves! What is the magic behind his standing still? Lol! Well-done Deb. The image is so evocative and your poem quite inspiring.
