Water is a Living Thing
by Tonja Taylor

Water is a living thing
A necessary brook or spring

Ever moving, ever giving,                                                                                            All its fountains lithe and living

Smooth as glass or capped with white
We’re drawn to its refreshing sight                                                               

Peaceful as a zephyr breeze
Bringing souls to bended knees

To pray when raging in the storm
Sculpting mountains into form

Cleansing beaches, changing lands                                                                           And all humanity’s soiled hands

Thrilling seekers with a fountain
Drop by drop eroding mountain

Nourishing a dying man
Oasis in a sun-scorched land

Delighting swimmers, cruisers too
Needed more than daily food

Wells often greatly prized
Wars over those vital to life

Habitat of many creatures
Full of ever changing features

Symbol of a brand new life
Cleansing wounds made from strife

Flowing free to wash and give
New strength for weak ones now to live

Water is a living thing
An ever flowing mountain stream

That represents the Holy One
Who walked upon the sea and won
