Poem 14 – H2O


pounds the earth,

cleansing it to its very pores.


threatens to drown all we have know,

and carry our thoughts away

on a warm current of air.


a necessary element of life,

a salve for a parched throat,

heat’s only savior.


the force of it can shake your being

and tear every single shard you thought

was able to hold itself together


Until there is nothing left.

Only an endless

stream, current, tide, pool, river, lake, sea, ocean, world –

of water,

shrouded in the salt of mankind’s tears.
