Celebrating Poetry in Public Places

Mere Water Am I
  - Dr. Rev. Byung Sub Van    

Becoming vapour
rain drops
Mere water am I

Drop by drop
making streams
flowing to oceans
not returning
Mere water am I

Filling a cup for the thirsty
moving factory machines
washing workers mops
then discarded
Mere Water am I

Clinging to evening glass
soaking daylight soil
blood of tree roots
seeping deep into earth
buried tributary
of an enduring river
Mere water am I
