Image- Triberg Waterfalls
Clear water flows,
Trickles down this path
Carved in patience by time.
To a table of buoyant balance,
Boasting microbes and minerals of life
Bursting as clouds of color before sunset.
As Xel Sha I flow,
Clear water, depth unknown.
Wellspring arising from mountains’
Mighty roots- gathered in vapors and veils.
The mists of morning’s mood, summoned to heights,
Fall again in raindrops, or flakes of forgiveness ending
The drought of tomorrow’s thirst.
Xel Sha (Mayan for Clear Water)
