Eric your thougts got me wondering……
I point the rock, you turn it over…discovery is yours.
The same with my words…I hope it is good.
Thanks for commenting at my place, Rumours of Rhyme, and putting a link in to this poem. Our poems about water are quite different, yet both speak of its timelessness.
Hello Tony, glad you did not take it wrongly – me putting a link in your blog – and thank you for your visit and comment. Peace, Eric
I like ending with a question. Very fitting.
Yes, the right questions are the doorway to wondrous discoveries. You might want to check this out > http://wp.me/p1YE83-9H
i have always been intrigued by water. something so mundane, & yet, there’s a reason it’s all over the world, necessary to mankind. It’s beautiful, dangerous, necessary, & mundane all at the same time. Very nicely done. I liked the analogies you drew out of it.
Interesting isn’t it that water is so multifaceted…just like humans. See how it relates to its environment and how humans do…
“With patience we run the race.”—I could not help but think of these words as I read this very beautiful paean to the wonderful qualities of life-giving water.
Very true and you are kind with your comments. All good wishes, Eric
Beautiful! I really love this reflection, it spoke to me. We can learn a lot from the nature and mystery of the life giving element water. Thanks for the good thoughts…..Celeste. 🙂
Thank you, Celeste
Everytime we are at the beach, by the riverbank, lake or pool…something to reflect on and how we react to circumstances, I reckon. Eric 🙂
The Water replies:
I am vital to you
I will quench your thirst
But don’t mess with me !
Well done, David!
Peace, Eric 🙂
One of the beautiful things about poetry is that the reader views from his or her background, culture, makeup and perspective in life. Poetry stands apart from other forms of communication because it requires deep thought.
You are so very right, Ian.
We all look into the same mirror but see our own image.
Thank you for your comment,
This one definitely makes you think. Does it mean we are fighters? Fighting to achieve our dreams, but yet having the ability to just relax when able. Slowly but surely keeping our end goal in mind, to never give up?
What does the lesson mean for you? Am I way off?
Yes, this definitely makes one think and each takes away something…not neccessarily the same.
You are difinitely not way off…in fact, you are spot on…as this is what the words reveal to you.
