The Balance Of Water

The Nature Of Mother Water

I’ve always admire how balanced water is.
It gives peace as we look upon its beauty.
It give calmness as we hear it flow.
It gently moves and shows us how to go with the flow.

It bends around obstacles,
and refreshes the spirit.
It cools the body on a hot summer day.
It refreshes the animals of the forest and field.
And it sustains all life from rain, stream and pond.

It shares excitement of white water rapids,
It inspires the mind from water falls great and small.
It strengthens the heart as we dip our toes in from the shore line.
It brings families together through boating, swimming and fishing.

She can put out a fire or make a fire grow.
She can replenish a dry field, or flood a family’s home.
She can flow free, or flow with incredible strength.
She can forth life in an abundance of flavors.
Or she can spread disease through ignorance and neglect.

Water is our savior, our judge and our jury.
We hope she holds us in balance with kindness and respect.
We hope she never leaves us,we hope she’ll always be there.
In friendship and in love, we’re intertwined and combined.

But Mother water doesn’t need us, while we do NEED her.
We should hold her and keep her in protection and care.
We should honor her existence and help her run free.
We should go out of our way to insure she stays clean.

If not, we may lose her and all that we love.
So I beg you to think twice about this can or that trash.
The chemicals we dump near her, or the claims that we don’t pollute.
One day your life becomes so small; as her anger looms too large.
