Why do I love water

Why do I love water?

Oh, why do I love water?
What is this thing in me?
That always wants to be there
Near Lakes, rivers, and sea
What is this deep, deep longing?
That fills my heart and soul
When I sit beside a river
And it makes me feel so whole.

What is it about the wetlands?
That magnetizes me
I find it so enchanting
To walk between the trees
And hear a million song birds
Or see a tiger snake
Or maybe a small terrapin
A swimming in the lake.

Why is it in the early morn?
As I walk, and moon so yellow
Seems to be sinking in the ocean
It makes feel so mellow
To see the ocean so at peace
On a morning so serene
There’s something about the water
That magnifies each scene?

    Hi Peter, you were on another winner here. I am another water Lover, being near it and especially being in it. One time at the pool the guard was about to dive in. I was just sitting on the bottom watching everyone swimming past. He gave me a good roasting for that one. I always Love it under water. Your usual beautiful write peter, bringing the world of water to life, your longing and Love shining through.Your heart shines again partner. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always MIKE

    I know why you love water. Your body is about 65% water and water wants to be next to more water. It's only natural. I love this poem Peter.....Your friend.....Roger

    I never thought of it like that Roger, but it is very true. I will never holiday where there is not a river or lake. Thanks for your comment, my friend....peter

    All life on earth originated in the sea. Earth is blessed with huge quantities of the chemical compound necessary for life as we know it. Good write.

    Beautiful write Peter! There's something so calming about staring at water and given that the human body is mostly made of water, it is only fitting to be drawn to it and find a measure of comfort from it. Well penned!

    I truly loved reading this awesome write Peter, and as you love the water, I rather see the land, all the beauty that land has versus the water! I do enjoy the water to some extent, but I would rather look at a great landscape! I loved how you brought the moon into it, and you did so very magnificently! I really enjoyed reading this immaculate poem this evening! What a glorious piece, Great Work!!
