Aqua De Vida - Poem by Raihana Abdul Jabbar

Be it the splash of cool drops on the face,
After sweaty, hot days...

Be it a mug of chilled water,
For the parched throats, it matter...

Be it a mirage in the burning desert,
Bringing hope in a traveler's heart...

Be it a dew drop forming on a tender leaf,
Slow and soothing, washing away all grief...

Be it the serene flow of a mountain stream,
With it, paper boats of a child's dream..

Be it the ceaseless murmur of the sea,
Setting your mind and soul free..

Be it, on a spring morn, the spray of nature,
Falls that inspire literature...

Be it not for the H2O,
Wouldn't we shrink like dried fruits?

Thus, The Merciful has blessed 'Aqua' be,
Alike a beautiful granted prayer, for thee..
