Flowing Lessons

A  L  O  H  A !

Dark or silvery mother of life

Water, water, holy mystery, 

heavens daughter;

Wizard of changes 

teach me the lesson 

of flowing. "

with seawater desalinated 
by fusion power 
is ancient.
 It's called 'rain'. "

The Great Lakes are now at their highest levels in 100 years and most are still calling it doom. *shrug* No one is ever grateful, it would seem, for the once in awhile things anymore.

Water is wonderful, even though we are surrounded by water here in Perth we haven't had a drop from the sky for over 50 days now :(

Mother of life indeed, but something of a moody mother.

I only regret I didn't tape the sound, (on Sunday) but even at the side of a frozen waterfall, one can still hear a slight sound of water....Wonderful! and, especially a most welcome sound among winter-ness!

Teresa said...

I absolutely love this post!! The pictures of water droplets are exquisite, and you outdid yourself finding all those water quotes!

Thank you, Cloudia! I enjoyed the thoughts and music that was water-related.

Water the liquid of life!

Elephant's Child said...

The smell of rain-washed air is one of the most blissful I know... A perfume I for one would certainly buy.

I've already had one good laugh today, Cloudia! Hoping for more.

Enjoyed the song.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I thought those were red serpents at first. As I was wondering what kind of snakes, I noticed that they weren't at all. Very cool photo, Cloudia!
