Sweet Water Book Cover

Sweet Water: Treasure

Water is a universal treasure for life
We drink, wash,
We exploit its abundance
Relax and feel its flow
For our daily chores
Sweat cascading in droplets as we work
It comes from far away
From high above
Travelling distances – miles upon miles
Soul searching for sustenance
Bringing with it the gift of life
Spreading smiles on weary faces
Gently runs through gullies
Into tributaries, into steams and rivers
Water is the soul, pure and crystal clear
Gem of the world
