Cool Clear Water

I came into existence
because there was a need
and because I am aware of
who and what I am.

I’ve taken on many shapes and forms
from the moment I was born
I suit, to suit all seasons.

At my purest I am
nectar to those lips which thirst.

There are times I am meek and mild
and the sun’s heat does its best to destroy

I can travel anywhere at will
(if I so chose)
from slow, slow trickle to
gigantic Niagara spill.

I can also be an ice-cold queen
and, maybe you will never see
the hidden depths I breathe.

Yet now,
Yes now
my life begins to wane
for, most of the older sane
no longer inhabit this planet
and I am being poisoned
day by day by the insane ones
who remain.

Yes, yes I am water, very much alive
and therefore,  I can die.
But, I cannot stop the madness
so
I cry, and cry, and cry
creating
cool, clear, water.

For some unknown reason, I have always believed that water is very much, alive. Not just the life it contains but, the actual water itself.
Masaru Emoto   Has carried out studies to prove his theory that water reacts to its surrounding mood, by forming either pretty or ugly shapes when frozen depending on what mood it is first subjected to. I’d like to believe what he says his findings are but, for as many who do believe, his theories and tests cannot be properly confirmed.
I’ve also thought for the past 25 odd years that fresh water is the next thing (after oil) that many wars will be fought over, with the increase in drought through climate change happening all around the world. I can see it start happening within the next few years.
The prompt called for us to become what we wanted to write about and, because I love it, I became the water

  1. Every line in this poem is necessary and true. It enthralled me. and your explanatory paragraphs are just as enlightening. Thank you!

  2. It reminds me of the song, Cool Water: “Dan and I, with throats burned dry, and souls that cry, for water— cool, clear water.”
    This is wonderful. I enjoyed it very much, and understand it only too well.

  3. You have written so beautifully in the voice of water and you are very correct in your thoughts about the next thing to be fought over after oil will be water. I believe Emoto’s findings – I’ve seen his books of photos on how water reacted and changed according to the energy directed towards it……..it is very much alive, and, as the source of our aliveness, it horrifies me how we allow toxins and waste to contaminate it. Loved your reference to the “insane ones who remain”. Great topic, and so well written.

  4. I’ve read Marau Emoto’s book!!! I love what you done here:

    ” maybe you will never see
    the hidden depths I breathe.”

    and here:

    ” I cannot stop the madness
    so
    I cry, and cry, and cry
    creating
    cool, clear, water.”

    Goosebumps…what an amazing write, Bren, so meaningful.

    I love the idea of emotional energetic water crying…wow.

    Thank you, for writing to this!!

  5. Yes!!!! Bren! I read Masaru Emoto’s book…oh your poem gave me goose bumps…when I realized who you were…which didn’t take long your poem really took on an emotional meaning.

    I love this:

    “I can also be an ice-cold queen
    and, maybe you will never see
    the hidden depths I breathe.”

    But I really, really love your ending:

    “But, I cannot stop the madness
    so
    I cry, and cry, and cry
    creating
    cool, clear, water.”

    Oh , my goodness…this just trilled through my being….the very thought of water…emotional energetic water crying…so good.

    Thank you for writing this very meaningful piece, Bren.

    🙂

  6. i love that you took the voice of the water…and the iceberg…a wonderful description…and then a wonderful plea as well not to harm her anymore….wonderful bren

    we decided to break for the evening…way too much time in the car…needed a break for sanity purposes…lol….

  7. Water speaks! Very nice. I was thinking of water around ice and what it might sound like, and I came up with first a deep male voice as in movies that have a Neptune, but I like the idea of a liquid female voice, multi-layered from loud to whisper echo.

    And you won me with your opening:
    “I came into existence
    because there was a need
    and because I am aware of
    who and what I am.” WOW!

  8. I like the idea of living water and its many forms and phases. And yes we do need to conserve this precious thing. Love the photo as well.

  9. Hmm the water fairies are in there bringing it alive. It is interesting as it helps us all survive, making it living to live as it gives to give.

  10. What a thoughtful write. I agree with you when you say water is a resource that people will fight over. Love the personification in your voice here too.

  11. I really like this poem. Water is, as I assume you know, an image of the soul, an old biblical concept. And you make some funny illustrations, such as, “There are times I am meek and mild – and the sun’s heat does its best to destroy”. Lovely. I really enjoyed this.

  12. I love where this prompt took you: the many phases of water. Fresh water is in dire need of careful conservation, so I like the awareness that this poem brings for our precious resource.
