Words cascade down the page in a Cascade Poem.
Like water over Niagara Falls,
words cascade down the page
into a healing pool of reflection.

Passion flows with a force that breaks down walls
in his mind, freeing ink from its cage,
like water over Niagara Falls.

The poet struggles for perfection,
pouring blood, sweat and tears to make
words cascade down the page.

That river of words will not stop,
until sensations are captured and drained
into a healing pool of reflection.

A sig awarded for winning "The Anything Goes Poetry Contest"

Author’s notes:

The Cascade Poem is a new form invented by Udi Bhatia, who also invented the Alliterisen form. It is a flexible form that can grow in length with a flowing effect generated by repeating lines.
