Weaker than Water

"In the world, there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong, nothing can surpass it." –Lao Tzu

“The Process” or, what I learned from a little snow

The Process

This is how

family is

made:

the ones closest

to sky

collecting

all that is

good in

the

rain, preserving it

in aqua

pura,

then pausing,  then

dripping beauty

into

the mouths of

their young,

birds

with open beaks.

What they

can’t

finish, they release

generously, gladly,

feeding

the rest of

a starving

world.
