First taste of pure water trickles downward, 

Each droplet a stream of delight and coolant,

for the creature in me.

Refreshing and renewing,

purifying a body,

and perhaps soul,

in thankfulness for today.


A mind set with only these thoughts,

pass through or become part of this water,

heading into a ready body

adding no weight,

merely meeting all needs.

No more or less.


It is the purity needed,

the cleansing power of spiritual want;

each bead cooling me down,

as it descends on a journey.

That is life desired,

            the way I should be.
