I Want To Break Free

The Rock

We renamed the Sunwapta Falls, in Jasper National Park, Alberta Canada to "Nick’s Rock", when we visited these awesome falls a few years back.

We were awestruck by the sheer power and beauty of these incredible falls, quietly overlooked and protected by the grandeur and magnificence of the majestic Rocky Mountains.

This is where The Rock had come to rest.

Like a magnet it draws you in, it’s captivating, hypnotising, it’s authority radiating boldly,

All eyes are focused on The Rock.

Is today the day it finally falls?

Who can look away and miss that moment?

I Want to Break Free

Many years have drifted by

Since this became my home

Nothing changes

I look North and South

Upriver and down

I wonder

What else is there

Out there?

Natures power

Constantly pounding

It’s force

All around

Washing over me

Under me

Pushing

Push me more

Let me loose

I want to break Free

Engulf me

Absorb me

Let me

Explore

Wonders new

Let your current

Take me

Down river

My dream

To join you

In the

Pleasure of Freedom

Source

Written for you Nick, Louise and Derek.

A wonderful memory of the glorious day that Nick was completely enraptured and mesmorised by "Nick’s Rock".

      The photos where still loading so I scrolled down to read your content and poem first. Then scrolled back up to Nick's Rock and understand your wishes for it to break free. Just waiting for those particles of rock beneath it to carve away in the current, or a torrid of flood waters to sweep down the river and nudge it off its resting place. It will happen, its only a matter of time. Thank you for sharing this special place and the story of Nick's rock.

      This is just the escape needed today as California hits the 101 degree mark. That desire to 'break' free is strong in all of us. Your poetry made for a refreshing interlude..

      The feeling of Nick's rock comes rushing through. It sure would be hard to see, feel, and smell that free water and be left behind as the flow travels the world. But it is a circle and the Rock will see those same drops come back around in a century or two.

      Hi marellen, we loved our visit to Jasper and driving through the Rocky Mountains was just beautiful.

      We were mesmerised looking at the rock, just hovering there on the edge, it looked as though it's fall was imminent, I wished it freedom and peace!

      Thank you for visiting and commenting, it's always good to see you, take care.

      Beautiful country in Canada. I just drove through Jasper on a trip many moons ago when I vacationed in Canada.

      I think the rock would like to break free and relax. Enjoy the peacefulness of the water running by.

      Hi Lucky Cats, I found this rock fascinating, it was probably quite happy where it sat, but to my thinking it was too close to freedom not to want it.

      So I think I must live quite close to you in fantastical imagination land, it's a good place to be:-)

      Thank you so much for dropping by, I so appreciate your comments and voting up, take care.

      Very nice metaphorical musings about the desire for this solid, fixed rock to be freed from its moorings..very much as we feel from time to time. Gorgeous photos. I am very attracted to the mental wanderings that such a poem inspires...sometimes (maybe often times) fantastical imaginating is the stuff of satisfaction; allowing us to feel what it 'might' be like....(this is where I live much of the time)

      Very beautiful, wistful...a kind of yearning. UP Beautiful Awesome
