water

 Pennacook Falls: I was scared driving over the bridge. Stopped at Boivin Park to look at the water and sculptures. I stood near the "Danger" sign and felt the immense power of the water: rain and snow melt. Water lapped into hollows and climbed up tree trunks. Water dropped and bounced back up, the spray a hundred feet into the air and visible a half mile away.

The shore is granite and quartz. There are iron sculptures and a marble Muskie memorial. In front of me: falls. To my right: falls. To my left, an arched green bridge and downtown. Behind me: tall Paul Bunyan offering an axe.
