words fall like water

 30th March 2023, Linhope Spout, 2pm

After a wet morning it was a beautiful afternoon for a wander up to Linhope Spout.  I'd never ventured up here before and I'm glad I did.

Little does this water know 
As it tumbles peacefully through the hills. 
There is no warning given 
Though the burn narrows and deepens in a cleft 

Little does this water know 
It will soon be flying 
Sparkling like diamonds 
A brief moment of glory 
As it falls and crashes 
Before returning 
To peaty brown stillness 
As it continues Its journey to the sea 

Where I will perhaps 
Meet it once more
