The Tap

Transparent I transcend
As a drip or droplet
Into the bassinette’s bowl I bounce
A spit, splatter or splash
All rains down 
To ripple and rise 
Confined and contained 
Constantly until I reach the rim
Where I run, rushing over freely
Away to depths, and distances unknown

(c)  Anna-Marie Docherty  Pembrokeshire, Wales

    Beautiful and vivid. Water is the stuff of life (and there's no shortage of it in Wales, eh?).
