When the waterfall meets the cliff, a haiku
Waterfalls have traditionally represented the feminine of nature and the cliff, the masculine. The downward flow of water perfectly complements the upward structure of the cliff. It is natural for the two to join and coexist.
When the talents of everyone on Earth, all men and women, combine, there can be nothing but greatness.
Do enjoy the symbolism in this haiku!
Crashing on jagged rocks
Rising in greatness
Towering, exudes great strength
Power in greatness
