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.
