Here’s a fun short story… 🙂
The Birth of a Waterfall
(Picture: Palisade Falls, Hyalite Canyon, Gallatin County, Montana)
A waterfall is normally a branch of a river, lake or stream that over time has eroded the land and rocks, creating a formation of cascading water. Brave trickles of water venture away from their secure home within the main flow and they seek a new life. The earth provides a trail as the liquid seeps in between stones, small boulders, branches, roots, and soil; nature guides it along a path.
The trail winds and twists like a snake, but the family of droplets does not give up. Obstacles present themselves throughout the journey, often separating the group, many stragglers are rejoined farther down the path. The leaders are the first to topple off of steep embankments as they approach their destiny. They feel an exhilaration of freedom, anticipation… and venturing into the unknown.
By now the clique has grown into a full-fledged pulse of water and the momentum plunges them over the steep, rocky and earthy edge. We see the cascade of liquid phenomenon tumbling down and splashing into a pool of water, only to watch them continue their travels riding within the sea of their companions… onward to an unknown destination… encouraging genesis… and life.
