Water Time

Water Time

she calls us to listen
to submerge in her depths
to observe her reflections
to taste her salty breath

the peace and the motion
the rhythm of waves
the lure to then travel
in leisurely ways

the waters envelop
the Earth like a skin
let us pause, let us honour
where life on Earth did begin

gifted time we give gratitude
to this precious resource
ours to protect and to cherish
this our life-giving source
