Something About Water

Something about water:
Ancient and ageless
The precise quantity since the dawn of creation
(Give or take a few space missions)
Partnered with Sister Sun and Brother Moon
Constantly recycling and returning
Gently raining down upon us
yet rising up in outrage and fury
Flooding the hapless, helpless land
Destroying our false idols
Obliterating our arrogant Towers of Babel
Washing away our filth
Reminding us who is in control...

Something about water:
Quenching my thirst
Pulsing in my veins
Showering me; anointing me
Cleansing me...
Busting forth and gushing from my eyes
Washing away my sins
Cleansing me...

    I like how you repeated the cleansing me line, showing how important that is to you. What a captivating poem, Tim. It really showcases your talent with poetry.

    I am with you on this one.. I am dangerous... but when it comes to water.. I'm not ready for the cleansing of "ME".. lol..kidding. Tim, i like the go go in your poem. Water is very refreshing for many reasons. I like the ones you jotted down on this verse. I really need a lake about now. Maybe I do not need to carry all these sins with me. ((surprise!!))... I'm not innocent. ;-)... However I love your serious poem. always& forever the Texas She-Tasmanian Poet.

    I love this Tim, being a water baby I love to swim in deep waters, this is soothing to the soul, it has the sweetest essence, timeless, ageless, and agile. A mere reflection of the spirit who wrote this eloquent verse, stay sweet and dear xxx

    I'm adding this poem to my favourites. And I am adding YOU to my favourite poets list! You wrote this poem masterfully. It really is so strange to think about the fact that water literally keeps us alive, yet so easily destroys us. Fantastic "thinking" poem, my friend!

    This is great, I too am drawn to water. I am never fully relaxed unless I am close to water. Thanks for your visit and comment, it was appreciated.
