Of Life and Water

I have spilled
The memories of my wantings
In drops of nectar
Warm against tongues that thirst
And birds
Whose flight has kept this yearning grounded

I am dreaming in waves
In tides running
Over the laughter of my sand

I am harmonious
Or perhaps protected
From the painful things running over
Threatening to muddy my clear waters

Becomes the gracious splash of moonlight
Striking the lengths of my legs
As I lay in slumber

It becomes the cup that captures awe
Spilling over in tears
Or the droplets of rain I’ve conjured

    MMM… I could swill the life and water of this poem around in my mouth and savour its flavour like a fine wine… refreshingly beautiful writing as always lolowe. :)

  • Oh wow, I loved this comment! It’s like poetry in itself. Thank you so much Jennifer. My mind has been on the water so much lately, I guess that’s why my poetry talks about it so frequently.
