Words take flight

606px-'Silence,_Waterfall_and_Forest'_by_Arthur_Bowen_Davies,_Dayton_Art_Institute

Thunderous waters splash and tumble,

cedars soar above jagged rock,

heartsong ripples, soft feet tread.

.

Red-tailed hawks chase the sun,

busy spiders trail silken strands,

thunderous waters splash and tumble.

.

Ferns sparkle under forest tresses,

ancient gnarled roots embrace,

cedars soar above jagged rock.

.

Wonder multiplies with abandon,

water, sun, shimmering cascades,

heartsong ripples, soft feet tread.

The painting reproduction entitled ‘Silence’, provided by Jane Dougherty as a  poetry prompt, reminds me of the temperate rainforest in British Columbia.  The challenge this week was to write a Cascade poem using the painting and the following words for inspiration: Cascade, Tresses, Eagle, Abandon, Rippling.
