Image for the poem behind waterfalls

behind waterfalls

behind the veil of waterfall
inset a cove with painted walls
crystalline drips amid foggy mist
trickle in cavernous sound
I found myself there
many moon glows ago, drifting
mixing, ochre, spit and blood
painting turkeys, other birds we know
smoothing stones to cascading falls
developing images scene through the years
take shape to things held dear
the once crudely lain now thick painted glaze
leavings that stain layer upon layer
As the blacken top bakes ashen past
the center of it all roars the fiery core
that no matter what stays there claims change
in embracement I stake my cave
one painting at a time
