Aqua Poetica – Parts I – IV (Water; AmI)

 

I

Water

 

It is a sentence all by itself

Subject, verb and predicate

Water is the stuff of life

Water, Am I

 

Water

 

II

Water

 

Held together in a fragile web

Of membranes, of cell walls

Permeable tissues, some hard

As dense as bone, others soft

As malleable as the wetted

Tongue

Water is me

 

Water

III

Water

 

Two gasses; oxygen,

Hydrogen, elements

Bonded in the valence

The weak electro-link

A current, the energy

Forming the template

Of life’s first moment

 

Water

 

IV

 

Water

 

The crèche within which

Our carbon atoms nest

Metamorphosis…they respire

Become bacteria, and breathe

In water, amoeba, and later

Much later…become we

Creatures, all animated

Appetites, and moving desires

 

Water
