Whispers in the Waterfalls

Morrigan Harker

Whispers in the waterfalls
Echo out my name,
Beyond the forest dark and deep
Where my soul shall now remain.

They speak a tongue forgotten long
That none may ever hear,
But now they speak a thousand strong,
Resounding in my ears.

They speak to me of long ago
A life I may have lived—
The trees, they sing a lullaby
Of the peace their roots can give—

The creek, it beckons me to stay
Tells me I’m not alone,
My frazzled mind unraveling
As current kisses stone.

I wonder if my place is here—
The forest I now roam—
For while I’ve just now walked this path,
I feel I’m leaving home.

I turn to leave but cannot stop
To take a look again,
To see the forest dark and deep
Where my soul shall now remain.
