Water's Hug


No beloved’s hug
Can be compared
To water’s hug.
No beloved’s warmth
Can be compared to
Water’s Warmth
In summer’s afternoons,
The outer heat
Of water surrounding
The body matches
With the inner heat;
They play a beautiful
Symphony.

True love is noiseless,
Or so I believe;
No loud fights,
No accusations
Of betrayal or finding
Another beloved.

And water is so gentle,
No gentleman can
Be ever compared
To its gentleness’,
To its calmness
When it squeezes;
Massages the whole
Body and every cell
In a way that cure
Heart and muscle pain.

The pure true transparent
Colour of water can only
Be seen in a white pool;
The effect of sun beams’
Reflection, in such a
Swimming Pool, on spirit,
Body, and mind is inexplicable.

When you dive opened eyed,
And you see the different
Unmatched designs,
Their beauty is just
Beyond my ability to tell
Or any description
Of any singer or poet.

The baffling upshot
Press me out of awe
To say AH and ooh:
Thanks to you my God
For giving me a heart
That appreciates small
Things as well as grand,
Thanks God for making
Me happy again in arms
Of my oldest and for ever
New beloved: WATER.
