The unpredictable water orchestrates
a force of sound
through a watchful landscape.
A constant breath reverberates
as clouds spread themselves
to bear weightless shades
across wind-carved
trees and whales of rock.
Transforming the quivering flux
into a circuit of power,
an upfling of savagery
its drenched elements
hurrying into frame,
transparent and deep-seated
where the traveller's eye
translates the chaotic and reconciled scene.
