Water; Am I (Aqua Poetica) Part XVI

Water, Am I
(Aqua Poetica)

Water

With water we prepare ourselves
For the ritual encounter with God
Muslims, wash before entering
The mosque for daily prayers
Christians wash, in baptism where
The Spirit of grace is conferred
The new creation is made in water
Formed like a child in the womb
Rituals as deep as the well of
Ancestral histories, the deep
Where sleeps, Leviathan

Water
