(AAAA) .Water's Life And Seems Alive Poem by S.zaynub Kamoonpuri


Waves on the rocks a'crashing
In it human feet go splashing
And elsewhere in the swollen river
'gator tails go thrashing
Water may be stagnant or it may be thus moving

Sometimes softly dripping
at times forcefully gushing
In brooks babbling
In streams gurgling
In springs bubbling
In rivers running

From faucets freely flowing
or from pipes coercingly spurting
At times noisily sloshing
But in lakes musically rippling

In it diving and wading
In it refreshing bathing
Or spic and span cleansing, rinsing
In it slow sailing or speedy surfing
Fishermen fishing or busy boating

Ah water, through cracks seeping
From waterfalls cascading
As rainwater splattering
From sprinklers sprinkling.
From hoses spattering
From rooftops streaming.

In whirlpools swiftly swirling
From taps simply trickling
Elsewhere rushing, whooshing

Ah yes water is life, water tis a böon
except when it goes flooding, drowning
or tsunami sea-quaking!
Then only it becomes a bane
as it drags dreams and dreamers
down the drain!

But oughtn't we be preserving
instead of forever polluting
This precious liquid so valuable to life
Oughtn't we be saving?
Instead of negligent wasting?

    Water—a most valuable resources, yet we are so trifling in our tendency to be wasteful of it. Water is life - just think about it the next time you are thirsty. Powerful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply
