Companion

It pours from faucet with force of a dream,

runs over rocks with shimmer, glassy sheen

that transfixes eye, hypnotizes your

wandering thoughts which suddenly migrate

to topographical caverns unknown.

 

Water: the quintessential dream of dreams

which composes most of our body mass,

remains a mysterious element.

Why is water both heavy and flowing?

Why do our minds work like a waterfall

processing, churning numbers, floating words

like frayed mottled leaves in a rural stream?

 

Without water we cannot go further.

Even the essence of love is water.
