We are water beings

We are water beings
Living
On a water planet.

Listen:
Sometimes it rains.

Perhaps raindrops are angels
Training for a higher destiny:
A liquidity of light
In the empyrean.

Listen:
Sometimes streams flow.

Perhaps flowing streams are angels
Trying to take off:
Bounding bubbles
Aspiring upwards.

Listen:
Sometimes water stands still.

Perhaps standing water
Is a concentrated tincture
Of angels:
Cordial for the crestfallen.

It is difficult to know.

But it is easy to hope.

Hope is fluent:
It flows like water
And forms droplets
On that which is
Unnecessarily dry.

Listen well to the water;
Learn its fluidity of being.
Return to the experience
Of smooth,
Bubbling,
Lubricity,
And flow free.
