Random Poem:

Finding Faith in Water
unknown

Find water
 1
and hold it,
 2
let it slip between
 3
your dreams,
 4
and into your heart
 5
and over the
 6
parched, cracked
 7
pericardium that
 8
holds your last breath.
 9
Let it soak,
 10
in and out
 11
of your soul
 12
watching it bubble
 13
and breathe
 14
over the gritty
 15
gravel filled gashes
 16
of ancient gulfs
 17
and clotted iron
 18
dunes.
 19
Let it rust
 20
and rebuild
 21
those veins
 22
like martian vistas;
 23
Olympus Mons
 24
mountains in retrograde.
 25
So soon
 26
we'll find water
 27
and hold it.
 28
Just find water
 29
to behold it.
