Canyon Falls refers to two distinct metaphors in this collection of poems about love relationships. It begins with that moment we know we are about to fall in love, when the breath stops, but the heart races. The future appears beautiful, like the view from a canyon’s rim. Sometimes we peek over the precipice and step back. Sometimes we jump in feet first anyway seeking that powerful energy of love flowing like a waterfall at the canyon’s heart.
There is risk in trusting that incomprehensible leap from the canyon edge will result in something good. There is that immersive experience in the midst of pure love energy. There is reflection after the fact. And finally, there is forgetting about the hundred-foot fall the next time we leap into the arms of love.
