Water energy

"W" is for Waterfalls

Went for a walk yesterday, by the waterfalls.

Mount Albian Falls, Hamilton Ontario
The ground was wet after the morning rain and I picked my route carefully, trying not to slip in the mud, trying to keep my running shoes relatively dry.  Kids and dogs caked in brown splashed past me.  I left the main trail and headed up the sharp hill, making my way around the rim of the falls, until I was directly opposite the rushing water.  I stood quietly, letting the sound of the water fill my ears.  Gradually I became aware of the energy of the water, the powerful surge as it hit rock, the reverberating splash into white.  The energy embraced me, pulling me forward.  I felt dizzy and held on to a small tree, afraid I would fall into the gorge below.  It was scary, yet exhilarating, and I stood mesmerized until footsteps in the gravel behind me broke the spell.  I tried to refocus on the energy, but the moment was gone, everyday reality flooded back in.   I was disappointed, but smiled at the couple as they took my place at the edge.  As I walked back to my car I wondered if they were feeling the pull of the water.... the energy of nature.

  1. They are lovely aren't they. The interesting thing is, you can't make them happen. They sneak up on you when your "being" instead of "doing".
