couple water dance

I am the mist. In thousands of shapes i reappear high above the earth in the blue sky. i float. i drift. i am the clouds. carried by winds from distant seas. i move, growing heavier, growing darker, returning. i am the storm front. at the walls of the mountains, i rise up as gleaming power-filled towers in the darkened sky. i am the thunderhead. i blind the sky with lightning. the earth trembles with my thunder. i rage. i drench the mountainside. i am the storm. storms come. storms pass. i am countless droplets of rain left floating in the silent air. i reflect all the colors of sunlight. i am the rainbow. i am one thing. i am many things. i am water. this is my dance through our world
I am the mist.
In thousands of shapes i reappear
high above the earth in the blue sky.
i float. i drift.
i am the clouds.
carried by winds
from distant seas.
i move,
growing heavier, growing darker, returning.
i am the storm front.
at the walls of the mountains,
i rise up
as gleaming power-filled towers
in the darkened sky.
i am the thunderhead.
i blind the sky with lightning.
the earth trembles with my thunder.
i rage.
i drench the mountainside.
i am the storm.
storms come.
storms pass.
i am countless droplets of rain
left floating in the silent air.
i reflect all the colors of sunlight.
i am the rainbow.
i am one thing.
i am many things.
i am water.
this is my dance through our world.
