Drink deep, little one…

The water poured over you today
has been part of the world since its beginning
and will be until its end.

It quenches the thirst of the gasping
and cools the throats of the parched

it washes the world clean

it lets the world live.

Drink deep, little one.
Soak it up.

Drown in its life.

It’s yours now.
