    Serendipity Blessings From Roman Fountains Gushing

    Romans long past left heritage fountains
    carved from worked stone cast in bronze
    Romans eyes longed for delight from waters
    mastered worked to achieve graze of swans
    cast bronze fountain was mating of copper tin
    perpetual endless never interrupted water within
    childlike delights minds wet pleasure gushed in
    water without flaw refreshes leaves our soul clean

    water flows leaps dances delight defies cell gravity
    water rushes into air falls to fill fountain bowl cavity
    water shapes springs into air in youthful spontaneity
    water reflects impulsive impulses flexible personality
    water encapsulates an identity date with enticing eternity
    water refreshes embodies good fortune curious serendipity

    Water Flows From Fountains Gushes

    water flows through pipes
    hidden from fountains gushes
    with released life pressures
    forced up through air gravity
    defying until point of still stall
    gravity hung for momentary
    fleeting split frozen moments
    before arching back ground fall

    fascinating is interaction
    between the cast fountain
    flowing gasps of gushing
    water in penetrated air stilled
    in summer warm air tickling
    in winter cold chill air soaking

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
