Ode to Mantayupan Falls

Sheer Delight


Ode to Mantayupan Falls


Whistling sweet nothing to me

While caressing my entire psyche

Hovering into my being

As I close my eyes just sensing


Massaging my scalp

Whilst listening to the harp

You envelop me with tenderness

And I succumb to your closeness


As coldness seeps through my skin

Inching its way through my shin

What a wonderful experience

A way beyond my means


I want to remain there

And be engulfed with your care

Oh, Mantayupan a lovely sight

Being with you brings sheer delight…

      enjoy your trip Linda...actually the falls lost its water last week...because the resort owner wanted to develop the area...suddenly the water stopped flowing...when they stopped the development plan...the water returned...

      Oh now you made me want to try this experience too :) Gosh have been so busy with work there had been no time to relax. The most I could do was walk on a patch of grass. Take care...

      Beautiful sense of assonance in this piece--it makes it feel as though the water is flowing!

      I can feel the sensations as you run through them... I haven't stood under a waterfall in many years... I am too shy to do that, but your poem brought back those memories from my younger days. Have a blessed day!
