A Waterfall Before the Storm

A waterfall before the storm:
air bursting green, a funnel of
wings, the brim boring down.
Lead, a broken tomb, the vile
sun, bilious and detached. Mist
rises with the wind, jackets blow
aside. Arm in arm, we climb. In
the pounding of the rocks a
mouth, the wordless thought of
a deaf giant. Our feet find
no hold.


Margaret Shultz, age 18
