Whenever I hear the sound of water, be it on the shore where the waves are lashing, be it near a fountain, near the waves splashing in the lake, the ripples in a river, the sound of rain or be it around an enormous waterfall, it soothes me. A beautiful water body is not only pleasing to the eye but it also casts a magical spell in our ears.
The sound of water
Rhine Falls in Switzerland
A couple of years back, I visited the Rhine falls in Switzerland, which is the largest plain waterfall in Europe. One of the charming things about visiting a waterfall is, one can hear the sound of the fall from far away. The Rhine falls is no exception to this fact.
When I stood before the huge body of water, it was truly an enchanting view. The splashing white droplets all over, coming from the cascade, and making me wet was truly refreshing and relaxing.The splashing white droplets all over, coming from the cascade and making me wet was truly refreshing and relaxing. #Travel #Switzerland Click To Tweet
Tips: Best Places to Visit in Switzerland
The roaring waterfall amidst the greenery was indeed fascinating! Undoubtedly nature is full of expressions. Sometimes it expresses through its profound silence (like in Norway) and sometimes it celebrates with sound.

Adventure in Rhine Falls
The most adventurous part of the trip was when our boat went near the waterfall. Water droplets emerging from the massive volume of water were like smoke, blurring our vision. I could not hear anything but the sound of the fall. When nature speaks, one can hardly hear any other sounds! No, I was not scared, I was spellbound by it. It appeared like foam all over. I was captivated when I saw the white water droplets were sparkling due to the brightly shining sun.
I feel a waterfall resembles a human life. The beginning is cheerful, roaring and sparkling. As time passes by, the once turbulent waterfall becomes a calm river. The depth increases. It starts listening to the beckon of the ocean to meet with a supreme power like we meet with death or transcends to a supreme power at the end of our journey.
As the river continues to flow through diverse locations it experiences a unique journey just like our journey from birth to death.I feel a waterfall resembles a human life.

Awesome …. As Lord Byron so wisely said
here is pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal……
Ik was altijd bang voor de waterval. Want, hoe meer ik ouder kinderen worden, ik viel van de waterval. Verwijder de waterval geluid natuurlijk en wild. Dit geluid om het nog erger mijn zenuwen te maken.
Maar, aan de andere kant, ik heb me altijd afgevraagd watervallen in Zwitserland. Sterker nog, ik vraag me af in Zwitserland.
Welcome to my blog.
oh that's of course a dreadful experience! Nature sometimes becomes harsh as well!
Beautifully chosen words.
Thank you so much Sandra!
Water is most definitely one of my favortie sounds on earth….from the soft trickly os a flowing stream to a raging waterfall…they're all so soothing in their own way 🙂
Yes, absolutely! My most favorite is one from the newborn waterfall flowing through pebbles!
I love the sound of water, it's relaxing, and I like to think that water running free is a good example of what our thoughts should be, we should just let them run free and go away, not keep them in our heads and turn them upside down in hope of finding a solution to our problems.
Yeah, some thoughts knock, some go away, you never know!!
So amazing, so beautifully written.
Wow! Listening to the ocean inside
from her heart to his mind. Melodies of love….
Welcome to my blog Christina!
When I close my eyes and hear the sound of the water beside the lake, my restless mind calms down. Indeed those sounds are melodies of love!
