Your body of water

Your body of water isn’t always as lake or pond as you think.
Sometimes it oceans and seas itself for what it is.
Storming words, whirl-pooling thoughts, deep dark gazes, and clashing ways!
You tsunami your way through lives,
Unapologetically storming anything that dare be still.
Don’t stop!

You tsunami your way through lives,
Unapologetically storming anything that dare be still.
Don’t stop!

DEAREST BODY OF WATER Thornton State Beach in Daly City, California
TO PROTECT WATER I usually walk with bags when I visit bodies of water, and I store my trash until I find a garbage can.
