"Water is my soul"


The Know of the Flow

Water and life are one
Each has its rhythms and insists
On these as it wears away what resists
The know of the flow as it goes to show
Though I go I am not alone
As everything turns around
And as I circumnavigate

Life is a dangerous way to grow
Where stone breaks water ceaselessly
But I come to know the flow as I go
Coming and showing and going and shown
What I can see of eternity
And I come to know the go of the flow
Where water breaks stone finally

I ride the tide of being me
Where others who tried were drowned
Alongside others or beside
Myself between one and the other side
Arriving as I do here
To be departing there
Between the going and coming tide

Though I am ice in the sun
Written on water to disappear
Melting upstream like salmon do
Life will do as it does and has done
Proving me as time has proven true
As in its rhythms life insists
To be as it transforms who resists
Who learns the hard way how
Or the easy way how not to

The beating heart of destiny
The sure and steady breath
Of life to make the best of me
Written on water and found
To leave to time the rest of me
One step ahead of death
One step is all it takes

One heartbeat and one breath between
Life makes its rhythms known
In living synchronicity
In everyone embrace makes
It always so it is never too late
Tuning the turnings of everywhere
As everyone turns around
To the meaning of what things mean
This is the know of the flow
Water is my soul

Stephanos stone by stone
A scapegoat for the sin of fear
Martyred to eternity
Was broken to be made strong
Where water breaks stone finally
Shattered to shards through the mirror
Transcending hate to another state
Living right through dying wrong
Past not to be to be
Forever becoming now

Molecules made whole
Into this form you see
From this side I see clearer
Translated into grace
I know the flow I go along
And I am not alone
Water is my soul

I close my eyes and open to be
In sight of the unseen
As water knows even as it flows
In its rhythms to the sea
Undoing what stone has done
What stone resisting also knows
As water carves its canyon
Stone by stone
Till it breaks

Water and life are one
This is the know of the flow
