Waterfalls and Wildflowers

Waterfalls and Wildflowers

A Poem by Ashira Macy

As we sailed away,

Tides melding bronze

With vivacious greens

And calm blue hues,

Spectacles overtook senses.

 

Water came crashing down

The rocky slopes

In a liquid avalanche

Of droplets painted ivory, prisms

Reserved for dreamers like you.

 

We passed through

The downward stream,

The past hitting us like bricks

And soaking us

Through to our memories.

 

You just laughed -

A little water never hurt anyone.

And I reached out

To the side of the cavern,

Plucking that golden wildflower

 

Tucking it behind your ear.

I smiled as you danced,

Splashing in the puddles,

And singing in the rain

Of childhood innocence.

Author's Note

Ashira Macy
First poem I have written in a while, I have been having terrible writer's block as of late, so it may not be up to par. I tried to write this from a different point of view than my own, a father's perspective, so that is a new venture for me.

A fascinating read indeed as if venturing into an oceanic painting while the artist's world is slowly brought to realistic life. You have captured the imagination of a child and preserved it in this poem literally whisking the reader away ever so gently into that present place. I envisioned waterfalls, fountains of youth, and colorful rain. One of my favorite reads in the past few days.

What a sweet and happy poem! It is beautiful and made me smile. The innocence of children is a joy that can't be beat. Thank you for sharing.

Ahh girl...i was suffering from the same lame disease. Its irritating when you have ideas and cannot pen it down. But i liked this poem. A voyage across your life. Past may hit us but it is in our hands that we let it rule or not.Yes its a new perspective a father looks at his child enjoying life carelessly. Then he realises he has lost his same wild nature. Nice write :)

I haven't even been on this site in months because I just couldn't write anything. Was very depressing. But I am glad to be back and have some poems to put up (hopefully they will be received well). I love this, the imagery is just beautiful. A beautiful poem you have here. Great job.

I can't write with music on for some reason. It distracts me.
You have drawn a lot into this and created a feeling of adventure through colourful and exotic landscapes.

A really nicely written poem, told from the perspective of a father's love it ascends to another level of beauty.

Liquid avalanche, droplets of paint ivory, reserved for dreamers like you.

What a playful poem - I also like the double alliteration of the title.
