H20

As dawn breaks,

She can no longer wait.

The thirst is to great,

To quench her palate.

A journey she takes

10 miles straight.

Thru darkness she goes,

A bucket she throws

On top of her head.

Wild animals she dreads

Strangers lurking ahead.

Sweat covers her face, 

but with each step., she takes

A love of family awaits,

Left behind at her place.

An old rusty pipe

Just in clear sight

A cloudy stream of 

Water. Opens to her delight.

Natural resources....

    After Rereading This Cool Verse, I Found It Seems Segments Fused Together To Compose A Somewhat Intriguing Perhaps Compelling Scenario In Which Her Beauty Takes Part Within For Lack Of Better Terms ? Mainly I Find Amid This Touching Moment A Truth For Many Within This Life; A Peril A Struggle A Love A Refuge ? Only In The Valley As Also This Age And Time. Thank You Beautiful Cheri, For Your Precious Heart's Kind Visit. Good To Meet You. Love, John
