I used to hike hours to get to an island waterfall that entailed descending into a valley,
scaling a muddy slope I swear felt like a 90-degree angle,
with only an old hemp rope and tree roots to hold onto.
Of course all this effort involved a prize,
which was the amazing aforementioned waterfall that spilled into a pool.
My favorite thing to do was get inside the fall, that was as tight as a closet,
and feel the pounding gush of water fall on my head.
