Bending the Tributary

BENDING THE TRIBUTARY Water, water, water, you feel so magnificent when you’re an extension of me. You flow with such grace and beauty. Every time I bend you, I feel so high with joy. With just a touch of my finger I can feel you flowing from upstream, miles, and miles deep into the mountains. I love every aspect of you. I love the way you feel when I jump inside a lake and you surround my body, making me feel weightless like an astronaut in space. I enjoy feeling the tickling droplets that I rain down from right above me. I hope the rivers never run dry.
