Time Like Water

Time in the context of a life

So little water in the desert

So little time in a house

Encapsulated in a body

A timepiece ticking away

Heartbeat clocking minutes

A water clock counting droplets

In my house the water would flow

In different directions making music and art

Sharing of water sometimes our idea

Someone to share our water with

That our waters mix and become one

Owned equally

On Earth

There has been the same amount of water

Since the beginning of time

Give or take if some gets blasted off the planet

One has the same amount of time

From the beginning of life

Give or take accident or lethal habit

Moments like diamonds

Precious and finite

Do not steal them

But give them freely

The ultimate generosity

Time to give

Like water
