The Element of Water
Water, the life giver, the mother
of us all. No living thing can survive
without it. The most primal
element in the cosmos.
We begin in water, but end in earth
or fire. Most of the body is water.
We are its sons and daughters.
As soon as it gets hotter, we'll
want to reach for more water.
Each cell a microcosm of life.
The human body itself a universe.
Nothing can happen within the body
We are caught in a bind without
it. We become ill, dizzy, and the
body begins to shut down. Until,
either the person receives help,
or death and they collapse
in a cleft, no longer able
to move or groove to the
beat of life.
