Diving in Waterfalls by Mary Bone


Diving in Waterfalls

I’ve been diving in waterfalls
all my life.
I’m not afraid of bursting
my bubble or
landing on sharp rocks.
The sharks are always circling
for their next meal.
My blood has dripped in
the water many times.
Hunger is all around me.
I still thirst for the waterfalls.
Somehow I keep landing on my feet.
