                   As seen through the eyes of aTen-Year-Old


 


I saw the waterfall today, and it was cool.


Full of rocks and swell little skipping stones.


Me and my friends jumped in


the deep end of the pool.


It was real cold and gave us all


the shivers.


We climbed high above the falls


and watched the water


tumble down and splash at


the bottom.                                     


I saw the waterfall today, and it was cool.


 


        


As seen through the eyes of a Seventy-Year-Old


 


I saw the waterfall today, and it was inspirational.


It reminded me of the passage of time,


forever on its journey


over the obstacles of life


on its quest to reach the Ocean.


I gazed in its pool at my reflection


and then at the sparkling,


rippling waters below.


Beneath lie the pebbles of


one’s life.


Each but a memory,


some brighter than others.


And then I gazed to the topmost ledge


and I was grateful for my journey.


And I realized it was only days before


 I would reach the Ocean.


I saw the waterfall today, and it was inspirational.
