I am the water

I am the water,

Gently falling on the leaves and bubbling through the soil 

Gathering myself into a lively stream

Babbling over rocks

Running down the hillside becoming deeper.
I am the water on which others float

Buoyant upon my surface I help them towards their destination

Safely bouncing on my currents

Playful and dancing in the sun and shade

To grounding on a soft sandy bank.
I am the water growing swifter and deeper

Cutting though the mud to bedrock

Carrying away the broken branches of the storm

My surface is for treacherous navigation

Power changing the landscape racing to join with the sea.
I am the blood of the world

Breathing twice a day in rhythm to the moon

Home to creatures great and tiny

Embracing the planet

In unfathomable strength.
