Power of Water

We are still in the belly of the snow storm amidst drifts and sideways streaming fat flakes. Predicting 10-15 inches (25-38 cm). Today’s poetry writing month stamp-poem came up as the power of water. What makes our planet hospitable to life (even in a storm) is water. Enjoy the poem and drink a tall cool glass!

Power of Water

Power of water
David and Goliath
Water carving rock
Persistence and repetition
over and over and over
until the canyon is Grand.

Power of water
to nourish
Fields of wheat
Great forests of Douglas fir
Delicate maiden hair ferns
Salamanders in a shallow pool.

Power of water
to inspire
Awe of a placid lake
A mirror of shore trees.
Peace of rolling ocean
green wave after wave.
Roar of waterfall
suspended then crashing
in a white conflagration.

Power of water
to cycle
Salt to fresh
Mist, dew, rain, sleet, snow,
hoar frost, Ice
Spring, summer, clouds,
fall, ocean, lakes, pond,
flowing river, winter.
