Water Ways

 We are creatures of land

Birthed from the ocean

Lured to water again with the song of sirens

Tempted by thunderous seas

Waltzing rivers

Lakes of calm

And playful creeks

Churning, rejuvenating, romancing, soothing, nourishing, blessing


 Curtains to other worlds

Dripping, trickling, flowing torrents


To be immersed

With senses saturated

 Flesh buzzing

 Filtered light and textured greens

Fecund redolence

Sounds muffled with the solemnity of a church

Sacred yet unconsecrated
