Be Water

Here is the gift of these magical days:  water, water.
You!  Be water!
This water is clear.  Swim in it!
Float in it!   Breathe water!
You!  Water is our element,
the place we live, the air we breathe.
Touch me, bathe me,
rock me, cradle me.
There is nothing to separate us.
No walls.
Nothing holds us back,
for we are Water!

My musical setting of the poem "Be Water" will premiere at our concert on February 24th, "Lady of Ten Thousand Names," at White Horse Black Mountain.   It will be sung by Stephanie Heidemann with myself at the piano.
