Bowls of Life…

Bowls of Life, Margaret Mair, original art

Bowls of Life, Margaret Mair, original art

Water falls
Like light and life
From a bowl of
Mountain-kissed sky
And dances
Pulsing through the
Veins and arteries
Of inland waterways,
Over and under ground
To the great beating heart
Of the ocean.
It pauses to bless
Happy pockets of
Leaf-greened tree-hugged earth;
Where it pools
It comforts the thirst
Of creatures small and large.
And ourselves
We lift it thankfully
To mouths and faces
In hands cupped
To hold a moment
Its clear life-giving
Coolness.
