Nourishment

Updated on October 5, 2009

 

Nourishment.

   ©-MFB III 

I was the frozen water

that thawed into absolutely nothing.


Alas I did not know as I dissipated,

that my essence fed eight flowers

and a six foot patch of grass.


It quenched some parched worms thirst,

and caused an acorn to germinate,

which will someday be a mighty oak.


Some of me added to the well,

that a family near by drinks from.


Several ounces evaporated

and became new snow,


protecting the roots of a fruit tree.


portions of me  became part of a cloud,


that sparked the imagination of a poet,


and 760 dandelions will launch white puffs


this spring because I became liquid


Plus eighteen winter birds sipped

my cool refreshment,

before I vanished into mother earth.

I am the ice that truly became something.

"Every little thing we do or say,

can affect the world even

if we think it means nothing."
