“Water” by Genevieve Hiatt

A friend,
always there to comfort in sorrow,
and share in happiest of moments.
Storms of rain mixed with the salty wrath of turbulent waves
calming an aching mind, lulling it into submission. Dulling reality, washing away tears.
Purest of elements,
Water a lifeline for all that breathes and lives. The song of water allows an escape
from the reality that is, to a reality that was.
A memory of childhood:
floating free,
no weight,
just you and water.
The beauty of its unpredictable tenancies,
Its unforgivable destruction,
Its deep love and connection.
As it feeds life and nourishes.
