The Deer and the Waterfall

Mountains and Rivers 399

When the deer return to the waterfall

it is a matter of trusting – that they will be

refreshed, that gentleness will win

the hearts of men, and that violence

will be defeated. That life will continue

along with the seasons,

that there will be the young

to grow and to learn,

under the protection of the sky.

Drinking in the promises

of another day, a new

beginning, knowing

how to trust.

  1. As Trini said, very beautiful! Let’s never stop doing what brings joy to ourselves and others. Never lose trust! Always get back to it and one day it will stay.

    1. Thank you MichelleMarie! I’m blessed by your comments! I did not think of that but you’re right. Happy New Year my friend, peace, and good health to you and your family.
