Soup Song

by
 How I make my soup: I draw water from a tap .
.
.
I am not an artist.
And the water is not so much drawn as allowed to fall, and to capture itself in a pot.
Perhaps not so much captured, as allowed to gather itself from its stream; the way it falls that the drain would have it.
But in this case a normal path interrupted by a pot; for which soup is the outcome of all I do .
.
