h2o…h2l’eau…h-below…high tide…hello

July 8, 2012

Water drips and slides and gushes

slipping over stones down slopes it rushes

until it meanders swaying this way and that

as the gradient lessens and lessens to flat

where at last it finds it’s natural level

beneath the ground or past the shore pebble

if you look beyond detail you may glimpse the devil

but water….blessed water….will find it’s own level.
