I used yesterday’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday post to rant. Maybe I needed to rant, because I don’t do that much. Just sometimes, and then it’s usually just inside my head. But now that that’s out of my system, I wish I’d written about water. Linda Hill’s prompt included the key word: element, as in earth/wind/fire/water. Though I love them all- I love to walk in the woods, and breathe the smell of the earth- I think water is my favorite. Today anyway. I wonder if it’s because I’m a fire sign (according to the zodiac) and water calms my fire.
Water is smooth, even when she’s crashing full of energy.
I love to let her waves caress my skin.
Or splash me awake,
Or tickle me with foam.
I love to watch the wavy patterns of light
Dancing on the bottom of the blue pool.
Under water is deep peace.
A dream to live there and not have to come up;
Breathing magically, moving gracefully.
Maybe I was a whale.
Water is what I am made of.
Water calms my fire,
Quiets my fear.
Deep down inside me.
