Mother Water
told me
I have a seed
inside my belly
a memory 
of times
when grandmother
could drink
from the pure river

so when i meet you
little stream
my mouth
begins to water
and i remember
that I am not a dreamer
but a knower
of times
and this gives me hope
for life to come

Mother Water
my cure
Mother Water
my belly
