I have danced within the clouds above,
torn the sunlight into rainbow shards,
dropped to earth to wash the dusty ground.
run across the land in joyous speed.
I have been a part of oceans deep,
foamed and frothed on waves of stormy seas,
forced down deep into the earth below
bursting forth again in a sweet spring.
I have been a part of so much life,
surging through your veins at restless beat,
running in the rising sap of trees,
then exhaled to rise up high again.
I can break cement and shatter walls
wear away both concrete and hard stone
ooze in tiny spaces, there to freeze
and expand, destroying with cold spite.
I am part of the great dance of life,
endless circle swirling through the days,
none can live unless I’m part of them,
I can cleanse or kill with equal speed.
