Water and the Word: Semper Gumby

Semper Gumby

 Believing we are swimming 

in a sea of indifference, 

I am shocked back 

to reality by the heartfelt 

words and actions 

of siblings 

from another continent. 


Partnership and teamwork 

pale as descriptions 

of the ways obstacles 

are overcome. 


“Semper Gumby” 

as modus operandi 

defies convention 

and expectation, 

allowing us to find 

a way where 

there seemed not 

to be one. 


Bring your heart, 

turn your life into art, 

and clean water can flow 

from places unimagined. 

Semper Gumby:
Always Flexible.
