Water (A poem for National Poetry Day 2013)

Each slurp, each sip,

Each slip through a lip,

Each gurgle, each glug,

Each whoosh past a plug,

Each splash, each splosh,

Each spin of the wash,

Each storm, each flood,

Each puddle and mud,

Each flower that grows

With rain or with hose,

Each suck of the root,

Each spurt of the shoot,

Each yacht, each canoe,

Each fish in the blue,

Each roar of the ocean,

Each wheel set in motion,

Each wind-driven drizzle

That pitters and patters.

Each drip.

Each drop.


It matters.
