Sweet Water: Fluid Connections

Fluid Connections
Water connects me to all my neighbours across the world
Water links the cells in my body so I can breath
Water connects one shore to the other
Water joins the forces in nature to bring about life
Water connects me and my friends
Water marries my life with those who came before me
Water links high mountains to low deltas
Water connects life to death
Water joins tree roots to canopy leaves
Water connects Africa to Europe
Water marries laughter and sorrow
Water connects the plains and the mountains
Water marries men and women
Water links minerals and soil
Water transforms strangers into friends
Water links health to happiness
Water joins mountain and river
Water links one city to another city
Water marries souls to spirits
Water joins beginnings to endings
Water marries all humans to the planet
