Water and the Word: Creation's Longing

Linger very long 

in the laboratory 

of earth’s history 

and you’ll learn 

that the water 

by which we’re surrounded, 

above, below, and around, 

is of a constant volume. 


What’s less consistent, 

however, is its quality; 

for the care it receives 

has varied 

over the eons. 


Creation’s current longing 

seems to be an invitation 

for our particular attention 

to the quality and quantity 

of what’s available 

for our sisters and brothers 

near and far. 


If you’re down with this desire, 

let’s jump in the water.
