Upon Never Having Been to Niagara Falls

Upon Never Having Been to Niagara Falls

Rick Spuler

A brochure reads: formed ten thousand years ago
as one age passed into another.
Twenty million metric tons flow
beyond some point each season.
The elevation is conducive.
Viewers will participate in an
unsurpassed experience.

The water falls. I don't
know about ten thousand years,
but have seen one age, and then
another. A child comes and goes,
and those left to count simply stand
in motion, sensing some beauty in forever going
over the edge.
