“it’s all about myopia”

it’s all about myopia

seeing only what’s in front of your face

taking for granted, feeling entitled, believing that

water is there to serve me

when in re-a-lity

I AM ITS SERVANT

 

Water is a living entity

with characteristics beyond fluidity

from frozen ice to cool wet to hot steam

and from space comes this invisibility

 

Water the living entity

heals you and me

slakes our thirst

washes our body

cooks our food

grows nutritious sustenance

 

Water has a language

you can hear it if you listen in a new way

it says, “chemicals dumped in

my ponds, pools, arteries, KILL ME.

When you Kill me, I can’t feed you –

we are dependant on one another

can you hear my watersong?”
