what i know about water

 

H20 since 

Genesis eternally

knows the 

way to go

fluid and 

colourless

sometimes quick

other times slow

often reflective the 

frozen version

less dense than the

flowing or the

lake like a 

mirror or

river channelling and

whether 

cloudburst or

lake 

river or

salt sea

condensation

evaporation

irrigation

precipitation

potentially refreshing for

me and for

flower and plant

pebble and mole and

tree 

sunlight

reflecting and 

thereby luminous

blue or brown or

grey or green

numinous

deep here but

there shallow

freshwater

thirst quenching

ebbing and flowing

subterraneous mysterious

streaming weak 

today and

drowning in 

flash floods

tomorrow or

bathing

cleansing

showering

laundry-washing and

August afloat on 

buoyant play 

centre and 

I’m 60% made of 

it and this 

I know and

more to

earth’s core 

for sure

about water
