Akaka Falls – May 6

5.6.2015  [Akaka Falls]

knees buckle, arms

quake, head ducks in

terror at nature’s



primate, primitive

instinct pulls one

lower to ground,

feet splayed

head hunched,

arms akimbo, hands

clenching whatever is

graspable, the eyes

barely able to raise

as if the god will strike,

pull, demand,



chemistry from some

earlier replication

dormant yet present for eons

now invokes.


we have not risen far

from the terrors of

our being.


the fear of the Lord

is the beginning 

of wisdom.
