Wonders May Eventually Cease

waterfallchurning whitewash
grinds away
the proudest stone
softening spray
mists down upon
mortals in awe
evergreens are nourished
by the purity of velocity

every day
watchers come to
point their fingers
and cameras
at the cataract
then stroll away again
with little whirlpools
stirring in their souls

eventually the falls
will wash away
leaving a narrow canyon
and a feeble stream
short-lived are we who
gaze upon the phenomenon
Nature is not finished with
the work of art called Earth
