Under the Waterfall

by Caroline Davies

Under the waterfall
was scarier than she’d

Damp and dark
muted green light
curtain of falling water.

Suddenly she wanted out,
back into the daylight.
But he was still holding her hand.

“See how it opens out
into a cave?”
But she couldn’t see.

“You’re not scared?”
“No,” her voice replied.

“C’mon, follow me.”
