*A water lily called the Earth
The cosmos called her pond
Her water bestows the gift of birth
Inseparable life’s bond
This water lily blossoms life
Like petals of a flower
Diversity is always rife
As that is her true power*
Earth is the flower in our galaxy garden where life blooms exponentially, and it is the water on Earth that gives it that life. The water on Earth is what makes Earth so unique amongst the planets we are able to observe. Every form of life on Earth, whether plant or animal, is comprised primarily of water.
Science surmises that water is the root of all biological life. When astrophysicists scour the heavens looking for planets where other life may exist, the first thing they look for are signs that the newly discovered astral body has, or has had, signs of water.
Let us all not take our water for granted, and treat water as the true gem of all of Earth’s resources… as it is more rare and precious than any gemstone.
