Let us be near the water and not want for anything else
In the morning when the sun lights the tops of the tall trees and they burn like a candle to the bottom
Let us be near the water for my mind is burning and I need a good bath
And just the sound of the rain water pipes trickling into the drain rock soothes
For there is too much in this world and we need a way to return it to its source,
for the waterfowl and the fools like me who need some release.
Let us be near the water wherever we find it, even if we need to poke the ground to see if it percs
For when I am here I can remember and forget and feel full to the bottom by just letting go
It is said we are too much with the world and yet removed by it through our distractions.
Here I am for a time, nowhere else.
