Mystery of the Waterfall

Mystery of the Waterfall
Wall mural and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor 
Waterfalls wall mural at author's residence, San Vicente, Ilocos Sur

Hiss, tumble, and roar;
catch the cloud into rain,
mist and fog in your favor 
for mystery to reign.

Your beginning and end
make a long, long story;
yonder, around the bend, 
down below you're free,

meandering to the sea,
across farm and pasture,
along dike and levee,
greeting every creature.

I followed you long ago,
but lost along the way
to where I didn't know, 
in abandon and gay  
 
of the real meaning of life - 

lesson you teach human
to go on, ease or strife,
 'til the last drop is gone.

Hiss, tumble, and roar;
catch the cloud into rain,
mist and fog in your favor 
for mystery to reign.

Cloti, a visiting Filipina OFW in the Middle East, 
in a make-believe pose before the wall mural.
