Niagara Falls by Onkar Preet

The Rendezvous,
where two falls meet… under a Maple tree.

The Trail,
where dreams walk… locking fingers together.

The Height,
where birds kiss… the unfallen water.

The City,
where Earth gets… “Seven heaven chocolate”.

The Moment,
where heart seasons… exchange a love flower.

The Stair-step,
where spring stands,raising her arms… and shout “hurray!”.

The Border,
where desires look across a passport… through binoculars.

Niagara Falls …is not only a FALL.
