Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica)Part XVI

Water, Am I

(Aqua Poetica)

 

Water

 

With water we prepare ourselves

For the ritual encounter with God

Muslims, wash before entering

The mosque for daily prayers

Christians wash, in baptism where

The Spirit of grace is conferred

The new creation is made in water

Formed like a child in the womb

Rituals as deep as the well of

Ancestral histories, the deep

Where sleeps, Leviathan

 

Water
