Water and air

Boundaries cannot be drawn, on either water or air

Surrounded on all sides by these lifelines

Free to play, sing or dance, but we’ve chosen

Walls where none can be built, these two friends

For life, water and air, will never give up their freedom

Of movement, the riches we crave cannot enter our being

Like these two, the elixirs of life, we rarely watch them

As they silently press on, enlivening islands of flesh

That come alive, if only we could share, like the fish do

Living and dying, common to all who are raised on water and air

Taking it for granted, the focus has become the mind, where neither may enter

Water and air, support for all, sides aren’t taken, that is real nature
