By Pauline Harris

During the walk 
To the stream
Sprinkles spat
At me from the sky

Raindrops dripping 
From my brow
I wiped them slowly
With a cloth from my eye

A few more steps closer
The rustling leaves
Made a thundering sound
I clasped my hands nearby

Walking further deep
Leaves on the ground
Turned to more rocks
Slick spots began to appear

Carefully stepping 
Here and there 
Cautious with my feet
I shall not leap
Even as my heart does race
Excitement feels my soul
As sounds of rushing water
Make way to my ears

Twickles of water cascade
Over the rocks and down 
The lengthy stream
Carrying with it
Distant dreams
Of fresh clean water
Clenching my thirst
Few droplets 
To carry me home
Away from this dream
My walk by the waterfall

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
