Water Becoming

Water is only change
Still depth in a mountain pool, now a tumble of light and movement
Slips over the granite edge
Crashing downward, blown sideways, making its own weather

Water becoming music
A spring seeps from a canyon wall
To lilt and trickle and giggle down a hillside
Finding stillness again

Water becoming lupine
Begins as February rain and mist
Emerging again as amethyst and lapis
Brilliant flower mouths sing praise of spring and sky

Water becoming magic
California deserts laugh in colors
Seeds are born from centuries of silence
And replenish their supply

By Beth Benjamin
