Mehara Take Falls

Published by EIJI | Wednesday, August 20, 2014 5:47 PM


A swimming hole from summers past, one of many memoirs I hold dearly in this soon passing summer of my life...


Southerly breezes blow
waving grasses in a pangola lea
Smidgens of purpled perennials
in a grassy green sea.

Fluffs of cotton white
sail the deep blue sky
A warming sun upon our skins
summer has finally comeby.

Clutching brown bag lunches in hand
in anxious steps we'd go
Down the lea's meandering trail
to a jeweled pool below.

Hearts beating faster
hearing the splashing falls
Ginger blossoms scent the air
ferns clinging to misty walls

Clothes and towels a-flying
plunging cold waters, our naked bodies met
Cleansing every nook and cranny
from the day's soil and sweat

Refreshed from the cooling dip
we laugh and share our meal
Talking of dreams that may be
for now their far from real

Succulent bananas and guavas
desserts but a glance away
Treed along the rock strewn banks
they surely make our day

We lie on favorite rocks
staring up at fern clad walls
Slowly drifting into our dreams
in the bosom of Mehara Take Falls.
