Cascade

Clarity as the memories cascade
tumbling down the precipice of time
as if the floodgates have opened
flushing away the debris
long accumulated
into calm waters
of the river
to disperse
in the
sea.
The
water
powerful
and turbulent,
cleanses heart and mind
to gift us the freedom
to be open and eager
as new beginnings beckon us,
so stand strong within the waterfall
trust it will wash away your doubts and fears.
