#Water


Water is innocent as dew.
It sparkles in the sun like new.

Water is naive and childlike as a river.
It runs along and has no bother.

Water is naughty as waves.
It tickles the feet and plays games.

Water is beautiful as rain,
and washes away all your pain

Water appears wise as a sea.
It's huge and unfathomable as can be.

Water is humble as a lake.
It has beauty simple but not fake.

Water is mysterious when deep.
Its full of fear and gives me creeps.

As a fall, it cascades,
as if breaking barriers and liberates.

As a fountain it adorns gardens and palaces,
and symbolises aristocracy, richness and success.

Water is stagnant and muddy as a puddle,
but has a core to be someone special.

    interesting view on water.....a natural phenomenon so elastic by its composition/ the stanzas pattern suits the theme (Report) Reply
