Alan Whitehorn: The Cascade

There is the famous Cascade in Yerevan.
From the surrounding hills,
its waters gently spill down
the white stone marble steps,
from one garden terrace to another.
Finally and spectacularly, it reaches the city.
It is an impressive and beautiful sight.

But there is another cascade
in this land of three million persons.
As I am introduced to one individual,
that person,
in turn,
introduces me to another,
and another,
and still yet,
Soon it becomes an exhilarating torrent.
And I am overwhelmed by the glorious cascade.
