Poetry Friday: Nob Falls


Nob Falls

The thrum of the pound
of the falls, beats on my bones
until joy smacks free.

I can almost fee that thrum. Great image!

Love your word choice here, thrum, pounds, beats, smacks! Powerful.

"Thrum" is such a great word! Very nice.

I need some joy to smack free!

I love "smacks free" and that "beats on my bones." A real waker-upper!

The power of the falls comes through in your words and smacks my joy free too. Pretty cool, that.
