The True Meaning Of Water

She is a river, calm and clear
the origin from far away
moving to the destination
unknown on this shore

I want to float on the surface
watch my ripples make pictures
patterns and movements creating
gentle waves in the current

In the flow I willingly follow
not fooled by the appearance
a mirror image of the world
is not the true meaning of water

Beneath the placid reflections
there is depth and meaning
energy and passion of life
a world undiscovered below

Following the course of meander
to discover the mysteries hidden
waterfalls of passion move earth
changing and releasing her truth

Fed by storms from heaven
once serene surface transforms
flood of primal energy set free 
and in the turbulence I want to drown.
