Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica) Part XIV

Water

 

Starved communities live

At the source of water

All consumption is public

Everybody is known

Who comes to the source

Of water, there is no anonymity

Their sources of water are

Precious, water is protected

Guarded in person, by custom

Water rights by law, and rites

By taboo

 

Water
