Thoughts Revisited, on World Water Day

Tumbling Water, Margaret Mair, Original art.

Tumbling Water, Margaret Mair, Original art.

Water pulses,
Falls and sprays and pools,
Murmurs along a quiet bed,
Pounds against a stoic shore,
Breaks over rocks and sand
Bubbling and turbulent.
In small quiet places
And vast stormy seas
It holds and sustains
Life,
Creatures and plants,
Some
Too tiny to see,
Others
Too large and fearsome
To ignore.
It falls from fat-bellied clouds
To nudge life
From the thirsty earth.
It covers our world
In a moving blanket
Of currents and tides,
Pulses through our bodies
With each heartbeat.
Because it is
We are
And we are
As it is.
