.*water, Steam And Ice (Couplets) - Poem by Debora Short

I am the contrails in the sky
Transporting your love to my heart-felt joy

I am those rolling white riffles splashing
Across those ancient glistening granite rocks

I am the warm tingling steaming massage
Sensate-ly refreshing your tired soul

I am that energizing frozen cube
That cools that sweet tea you sip on our porch

I am the main ingredient carrying
Life-giving nutrients to your keen mind

I am the visible steam rising up
That prepares your scrumptious wild rice tonight

I am those fluffy white clouds high above
That sponge down the dust into the earth

I am that which keeps your Force Five afloat
So you can sail on to your newer dreams

I am your frozen-ed winter delight
Magical crystals spun during the night

I am that drink your ravenous soul desires
Sprinkled grace, His most dear promise-d gift
