Her Hair is Like a Waterfall

Her Hair is Like a Waterfall

A Poem by I Cast a Shadow

Inspired once again by my recently departed lover is is still very close to my heart and there she will always remain.

Her hair is like a waterfall
Pouring down forever
Breaking upon her strong warm shoulders
Like the most even and smooth-ed stones
Stones; enchanted to be so smooth; so soft
Stones; alive to be warm at night
Even when there is no sun at all.
Her hair is like a waterfall
And it falls and falls so quiet and slow
Down into her golden and native-like back
Like a wonderful, shimmering, fantastic river.
There is no thing more beautiful.
Her hair is like a waterfall
Conceived and delivered by the sun
Like pur 'n fine thread pulled from a star;
Radiant and yet so cool to touch
Flowing from her crown like a whispered mellow melody
That gently and tranquilly drowns me
Flowing; near fluid
Like a waterfall
Like a waterfall
