And What Is Water

For which we are
In this summer.

Water is a lover
Water is a fighter
Water is a crusader.

For water
We are here
My dear
Water is not water
In this summer
Water is fire
In the hands of
Angry Brahman.

The Ganges and the Yamuna
And the Saraswati and
All the streams and rivers
Of the world give
Water to purify us
And we in return pollute them
Is water life we know and
Care not the answer.

Here is water
In your eyes my dear
Is it telling the story
Of victory
Our poets are writing much
About this water
But water care not anything.

We analyse water
We recollect our
Previous days
Related with water
But water is water
It is going on its own ways.

And what is water
You are asking me
And where is water
same questions by all creatures
See, I have not a drop
To drink now-s-days
How can I say
All waters are there
In the sky.
