a pocket of water

water—soothing, refreshing, significant to the earth, significant to human life, significant to all life.water giving to the life of fish & flower

according to the water information program of colorado “the human body is more than 60 percent water. blood is 92 percent water, the brain & muscles are 75 percent water, & bones are about 22 percent water.”

once during a workshop, an instructor quoted a poet who inspired him. i am uncertain of the actual quote, but what i heard was “a pocket of water can save your life.” considering how precious water is,

i have continued to think about what that means. So…

when my sweet companionmy sweet cuddly pocket of water giving you the foot
is feeling cuddlymy sweet pocket of water showing off his beautiful long legs

& i am wrapped in the long legs of his feline hug, i find myself in a pocket of water.
the embrace of my pocket of water

“Hear! hear!” screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, “winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it.”  —Henry David Thoreau, 28 November 1858 journal entry

When nature made the blue-bird she wished to propitiate both the sky and the earth, so she gave him the color of the one on his back and the hue of the other on his breast. —John Burroughs


when, birds are not birds & boys are not boys & when, boys think they are birds, if by chance they encounter a dog—would that be bird-doggin’—
