Water Of Life Poem by Terence George Craddock (Afterglows Echoes Of Starlight)

Water Of Life

Rating: 4.9


water flowing
in mountains streams creeks rivers
water trickling
racing to fill ponds lakes oceans

water mist breath allowing
myriad life possibilities
water small droplets sowing
web of life potential diverse forms

without water there would
be no magnificient
earth life lusting swarms

vast planet wide oceans
filling teeming brimming
with species complexities


water vast percentages
of amazing cells
that strata comprise
all living organisms

water sustaining
growth creating
spun life webs
unique ecosystems

food all food
fresh has reserves
of water bound

within water is
our life liquid
requirement most

sustaining nurturing thing

have you not heard
that humans
can go without
food longer

than without
prime life requirement
fresh clean sweet
running water

news flash without
water all life would die
realize without

water we could
not even cry
water an important


part of vibrant
healthy cells
water cool sweet
waits flavours

community wells
water circulates
in myriad plants
to carry distribute

nutrients
water circulates
in people to oxygenate

blood energies
water needed by dependent
earth life cycles


to survive


water
without elixir of life
water earth
will not be alive

I bask in all of this as I'm a water baby and begin and end my day with much water. As soon as my eyes open I consume a large glass of lemon water, then I make that trip down the hall and fill my tub almost to the brim for my half hour soak in saltz and baking soda. After I dress I have my cup of tea and water all through the day. Yes we would all die without it and for sure I love the luxury of it as well. Loving your poem Terence.....
