Under the curved blue
water flows forever,
cold current
hot current
fresh water into salty water
salty water into more salty water
going up as vapour
coming down as rain
all in the ocean
appearing and disappearing
forming and merging
again and again

    Dear poet. i like your poem but sometimes to much imagery and no meaning or feeling in the poem kills the point your trying to get across. other wise i found it very good. (Report) Reply

    I like this poem for a lot of reasons. I like that you dare to write about 'Being' ~ and it's not just your ego, it IS being, following a molecule of water ~ like how basic and essential can you get. And there is no judgement, no good or bad, hot and cold yes, flowing, aware, sensuous. And the poem flows, just like being does. Thank You for this gift. I look forward to reading/experiencing more of you poems. (Report) Reply

    Water is precious similar to life. There will be ups and downs. After all
    adjustments it goes on and on (Report) Reply

    All beings have their purpose and cycle to revolved in this life...Such mystery and magnificence, an immense or diminutive loop all comes back where everything started...

    Our perspectives are the product of our environment. This poem is a reflection of that. The writer is seized by water in its manifestations. Since our bodies are
    mostly fluid, he is not misguided in his view of 'Being.'
