HAIKU: Waterfall


(Sharon Hughes, 2009)

Serenading streams

join an illuminating

chorus of delight.

Waterfall in Bali (My photo)

I took this photograph when we went to Bali in July 2011. I wrote this Haiku in 2009; it seemed to fit nicely with the photograph of this beautiful waterfall.  When we were walking down a cascade of steep steps, to meet the base of the falls, we also saw two very amazing women, carrying stones, (granite I think) on their heads. I was flabbergasted at the weight these poor, brave women were carrying up and then walking back down to collect more continuously. Below is the photograph I took (with their permission).
