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
