Short Journey

 

It is a short journey as the leaf drops from the tree

It lands gently atop the cool water

Slowly it floats along with a turn here and there

Meandering peacefully down the river

A slight increase is speed is felt as the width narrows

Then motion is added with a drop down

Now we are rushing, the water is heavy

Momentum is gaining, control is impossible

Whoosh, the leaf tumbles, rolling under the incredible force

A sudden stop, deep under the water, the leaf is pushed at the bottom of the falls

Then moments later, to the surface returned

Calm is restored, one short journey ends

Another short journey begins
